Antrim, New Hampshire

The quaint New England town of Antrim, NH may be small in population, but it's big in community spirit.  Located in southern NH's Hillsborough County, Antrim offers the quiet, small-town charm you can only find in New Hampshire.  Parades, festivals and community gatherings are commonplace in this family-oriented town and moving to Antrim is itself like becoming part of a large family - a family that cares and helps each other out when needed.  Antrim is a town like no other.

Settled in 1741 by mostly Irish-Scotch immigrants, Antrim was named for County Antrim in Ireland.  The town was incorporated in 1778 and the first Presbyterian Church was built in 1788.  Using power from the nearby Contoocook River, Antrim began constructing mills and producing lumber, grains, wool, silk and steel products.  After the Second World War, Antrim started changing from a small manufacturing town to more of a bedroom community for the large nearby cities of Manchester, Keene and Nashua.  Still proud of it's history, Antrim residents celebrate the town's roots each year with fairs and harvest festivals the likes of which only a New England town can host.  Move to Antrim, NH and you will likely become a part of the celebration.

Twenty miles from the bustle of the big city, Antrim still provides residents with a plethora of activities, both indoor and out.  If you enjoy volunteerism, Antrim is the town for you.  Organizers are always looking for people to help out with everything from putting on a bake sale to building a parade float.  Volunteers help with the town's website, the town hall renovation, the elementary school playground, and countless other activities.  Being a small town, Antrim doesn't have it's own theater or many shopping plazas, but that's why people who live in Antrim live in Antrim: it's a small town that hasn't lost touch with its humble beginnings.  For the excitement and convenience of a city, you need only drive a half hour west to find the large college city of Keene, or a half hour east for the Granite State's largest city, Manchester.  Those two cities can provide anyone with just about anything they're looking to own or do.  Antrim is located within an hour of the lakes region of the state and the New Hampshire seacoast, just over an hour away offers outstanding summer recreation from May through September.

Antrim is a part of SAU#1, the Contoocook Valley School District, along with eight other surrounding towns.  Antrim operates its own Elementary school, but sends students in grades five through eight to the district's Great Brook Middle School and students in grades nine through twelve to the Contoocook Valley Regional High School.  Due to the small school-age population, Antrim has no plans to build its own middle or high schools any time soon.

Antrim is a town taken from time.  Family values and community pride run strong - something hard to find these days.  Antrim could be the perfect place for you to raise your family and put down roots of your own.  To find out more about Antrim or any other southern New Hampshire town, call Jim Miller Bean Group at (603) 801-3987.  We live in the towns we sell, we have the most current MLS for the state and we're happy to answer any questions you might have about purchasing property in this wonderful state.
