What is “Our Town”?
In the play, Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town”, the Stage Manager states:
The name of the town is Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire–just across the Massachusetts state line: latitude 42 degrees 40 minutes; longitude 70 degrees 37 minutes.
Unfortunately, those co-ordinates place Grover’s Corners about a thousand feet off the coast of Rockport, Massachusetts. It is believed that Wilder modeled the play after Peterborough, New Hampshire: latitude 42 degrees 51 minutes, longitude 71 degrees 58 minutes.
