Seabrook was first settled in 1638 and incorporated as a town in 1768. It was named after the Seabrook River and the many brooks meandering to the Atlantic Ocean through its extensive salt marshes. Its early inhabitants were primarily engaged in the farming and fishing industries. Many of our current residents can trace their ancestry to the first Quaker settlers who moved here and established what is still a community with a special small-town atmosphere. Early residents included the family of Meshech Weare, who became the state's first president in 1776, what we now know as the Governor.
Seabrook is a perfect location, within an hour’s drive to major cities such as Boston, MA & Concord, NH and a two hour scenic drive away from New Hampshire’s beautiful White Mountains. It is located just north of the Massachusetts border and offers two miles of white, sandy shoreline along the Atlantic Ocean. This peaceful seacoast community has clean beaches, an active harbor and a thriving business sector. The harbor is the home of the Yankee Fisherman’s Cooperative with an active fishing fleet of over 60 boats, that on any day can be seen bringing in their catch of fish and lobster. The prime beachfront property is mostly residential, year-round homes and a selection of seasonal rental cottages.
Seabrook is a wonderful community with a growing retail center.
