Baker's River, New Hampshire

Baker's river, a considerable stream of Grafton county, is formed of two branches. The N. branch has its source near Moosehillock mountain in Coventry. It runs southerly through Warren into Wentworth, where it unites with the S. branch which originates in Orange. After the union of these branches, the river pursues a S.E. and an easterly course through the S. part of Rumney and the N. part of Plymouth, where it forms a junction with Pemigewaset river just above Plymouth village. It was on this river, in the township of Rumney, that General Stark was captured by the Indians on the 28th of April, 1752.

¶ In more modern times, gold has been found in Baker's River near Warren.
