In 1851, the New Hampshire General Court authorized the governor and council to appoint a land commissioner to sell the public lands, and James Willey of Conway was appointed to that office. In 1834, Odell, which contained 23,751 acres (96.12 km2), was sold by Commissioner Willey to Richard Odell of Conway for $1,863.
