Wentworth's Location is an extinct town. It is now an unincorporated territory (township) first organized in 1797 in Grafton County, but since 1803 set off into Coös County, New Hampshire.[1] In 2010 it had a relatively low population of 33.[2]

In 1797 the land was sold to George Wentworth of Portsmouth. It was an unorganized plantation from 1797–1881. Wentworth's Location was then incorporated into a town from 1881 to 1966, when it became a township.[2]
