Boston Post Cane
Seeking the Oldest Resident in Town
The Selectmen are looking to determine who the oldest resident in New Hampton is for the purpose of awarding the Boston Post Cane.
Brief History – taken in part from The Granite State’s Boston Post Canes, by Barbara Staples:
The idea of the Boston Post Cane came from Edwin Atkins Grozier, owner, editor and publisher of the Boston Post newspaper.  In 1909 he asked Selectmen in New England towns to determine who the Oldest Citizen in town was and the Boston Post would provide a “gold headed cane”, made “of carefully selected Gaboon ebony from the Congo, Africa”, for presentation by the Selectmen, to that individual.  His idea was to have this cane presented to the oldest citizen, and subsequently passed along.  The first recipient of New Hampton’s Boston Post cane was Samuel Colby (1820 – 1911).
If you know of a New Hampton resident who we can honor with this cane, please contact the Selectmen’s Office at 744-3559, or via email to
