I wonder what a dollar in 1832 would equate to today? 
You certainly have some history down there, all I ever get to see older than 120 years here is rocks, indians did some nice work with/to them.
I say what I think not think what I say.

Thats the town, Bath,NH. Also has The Brick Store, built in 1824, is today the oldest continuously operating general store in the United States.

Really good hunting and fishing all through there.

 The river under that bridge is known for its cannibal brown trout and about the only way to catch them is night fishing.

When they get a certain size they tend to feed mostly just on fish, incluing other trout.

1832 dollar versus today's dollar according to the website I used is about $266.00 American.
