The northern section of the settlement, known as Nashville, withdrew from the settlement over the location of the town hall dispute. When the textile mills that were built began to close after the end of World War II and Nashua since then developed a diversified industrial-based economy. It now includes the manufacturing of electronic components, chemicals, computer products, office equipment, heavy machinery, and plastic products.
