  1. Migration and Towns
The Coos Road connected the towns of Hallowell, Manchester, Fayette, Livermore Falls, Chesterville, Wilton, Carthage, Weld, Byron, East Andover and then Errol, New Hampshire. It served the Yankee population, at first, but as settlers from elsewhere moved into western Maine and north-east New Hampshire, the route became useful in permitting not only access between Maine and New Hampshire, but also between Vermont and Québec through connecting spur roads.
