You may have heard our nation’s beautiful northeastern region referred to as New England. As a Nashua dweller, you may even refer to yourself as a New Englander. But do you know why it is called New England? Do you know what states make up New England? As dwellers of this corner of America ourselves, the team at Tulley Mazda is here to explain some facts and history about the New England states. If you’re interested in New England recommendations like where to eat in Nashua or local breweries, we’re here as a resource for that, too.


What States Make Up This Area?

Whether you are from New England or just stopping through Hudson, you may have wondered which states make up New England and thus, where is New England located? Looking at a New England states map, you’ll see the northeastern region encompasses six total states: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. This makes the total area of New England 71,988 square miles for a combined population of about 14 million people.

Why is it Called New England?

Merrimack drivers may know what states make up New England, but what about the region’s namesake? As the English came across the Atlantic and settled the region, they referred to the area as the quite literal “new” England. Though the more southern area of modern-day Virginia was named North Virginia— English settlers’ way of honoring the Virgin Queen Mary— this sector adopted a more self-explanatory and straightforward label. It remains the beloved region’s name today.
