Established in 1722, Chester is located in Rockingham County between Manchester and Exeter at the junction of Highways 102 and 121 near Lake Massabesic and is the site of early clockmakers. First called the "chestnut country," it may have been the first of the settlement grants by Massachusetts for expansion of the Seacoast populations. The name may have been derived from Cheshire, Chester being the county seat for Chesire, England. Earl of Chester is the title carried by the Prince of Wales.

Chester is close to Manchester, the Institute of Arts and Science, and Massabesic Lake.
