About North Hampton New Hampshire

North Hampton NH

Originally known as "North Parish", North Hampton, NH became an incorporated town in 1742. Though the town boasts a rocky shore, a beautiful beach and mansions along it's coastline, there is no harbor, which was the original reason farming was the focus of  this rural community.

Atlantic Avenue, the long tree lined road to the sea, features historic Runnymede Farm. The farm has been a jewel of the New England equine community since the 1930's. It was home to 45 stake winning throughbred race horses-including  the winner of the 1968 Kentucky Derby, Dancer's Image and  the 1985 US Champion Filly, Mom's Command.

Notable residents have included Revolutionary War Hero Henry Dearborn, whom has a North Hampton Park named after him. Alvan Fuller, a businessman and Massachusetts govenor of the 1920's who may be  best known for the Fuller Gardens on Route 1A, and Poet Ogden Nash.

The breathtaking coastline is not the only place where people congregate in North Hampton, as the town has a thriving business community on busy Route 1. This stretch offers retail outlets, restaurants, golf courses, a small airfield and major retail chains. With a community center in the works, many recreation and playing fields, tennis courts, a library, churches, a bandstand holding weekly concerts and plays, a Kindergarten – 8th grade Blue Ribbon public school and a beautiful beach, North Hampton is a top choice for residents in the area.

North Hampton features free weekly concerts at the bandstand in the heart of town.
