A view of the Second College Grant from the Diamond Peaks Trail.
Second College Grant is an unincorporated territory (township) organized in 1807 in Coös County, New Hampshire.[1] It is roughly the size of a town, but has a relatively low population. In 2010 the population was 0. It was created for the benefit of Dartmouth College, and provides a modest but steady timber income. Trails and cabins are also made available for use by the Dartmouth community.[2]

Records. No town meetings are held, and no town meeting minutes are kept in unincorporated territories. No record-keeping official is appointed. The county registrar of deeds should have the territory's land records. Nearby towns in the county may  keep a few historical facts about some of the people who have lived in nearby territories.
