Charlestown, New Hampshire

Set alongside the Connecticut River on the New Hampshire/Vermont border can be found Charlestown, NH, a vital little town in western Sullivan County.  Charlestown is home to about 5000 residents and is well known locally for its building’s architectural designs and its historic significance.  Set in a beautiful part of the state, over the past fifty years Charlestown has drawn thousands of people seeking just the right place to start a family or retire in peace and tranquility.

Charlestown began in 1735 as Plantation Number 4, the fourth fort in a line of defensive positions that ran north/south alongside the Connecticut River.  These forts were designed to repel Indian attacks and performed marvelously at doing so.  In 1747, during the French and Indian Wars, Number Four, with only 32 men defending, was besieged by a force of over 400 French and Indian attackers.  Amazingly, the defenders succeeded in repelling the attack and later, their commanding officer, Captain Phineas Stevens, was awarded a sword by Admiral Charles Knowles to acknowledge his bravery and valor.  Number Four responded by naming their town Charlestown, after the Admiral.  The town was officially incorporated in 1753.

Dissatisfied with their treatment by the New Hampshire government, Charlestown joined Vermont in 1781.  At the behest of George Washington, Charlestown returned to its rightful place in the Granite State and was re-incorporated in 1783.  In an effort to increase its size, Charlestown annexed a part of Unity in 1810.

Charlestown soon became a center for law and affluence quickly followed.  Resident lawyers constructed sprawling homes, many of which are still standing today.  In fact, 63 buildings on Main Street in Charlestown are listed with the National register of Historic Place.  These include not only homes, but the South Parish Church, St. Luke’s Church and the Town Hall as well.  Walking down Main Street in this beautiful town can whisk you back 150 years in time.

With a full third of the community’s working population employed in Charlestown, the town cannot be classified as a bedroom community, but it is a sleepy little place.  Picturesque and serene, the pine trees and songbirds seem to pull the stress right out of your body.  If you enjoy the hectic pace of modern life, Charlestown is not the place for you to buy a home, but if you want to raise your children with old-fashioned family values and a sense of belonging, look no further; you’ve found your new hometown.

Charlestown is a member of SAU #60, the Fall Mountain Regional School District, along with Acworth, Alstead, Langdon and Walpole.  Charlestown maintains its own elementary and middle schools, but sends its high school-age students to the Fall Mountain Regional High School in nearby Langdon.  There are no plans to construct a new high school in Charlestown.

Western New Hampshire has never looked better – and homes are available here in this historic town, just waiting for you to move into.  But first, you need someone on your side, someone who will look out for your best interests, not the seller’s.  That someone is Jim Miller of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.  Give Jim a call at (603) 801-3987 to start things moving.  Jim wants to help you into your dream home, so call now and be living in New Hampshire sooner than you might think.
