About Dan

DanRothmanDan Rothman is the editor of the New Boston Historical Society website. He has written two dozen stories, mostly true, about the history of this remarkable New Hampshire town. Dan and his wife Lisa have lived in New Boston for over thirty years.

For many years Dan worked with businesses in New England and Europe, helping them to replace people with machines. One day Dan found that he too had been replaced by a machine, so he had more time for his research and writing. Dan’s interests range from Colonial America to Daily Life in the Middle Ages. His latest project is a novel of medieval adventure for young adults.
