Bath, New Hampshire

Bath, New Hampshire, is a beautiful town located in the northwestern region of the state.  Bath borders Vermont to the west and is set in the picturesque countryside with rolling hills, plenty of forest and lots of room to breathe.  Bath boasts a small population, only about 1000 people, and those living here truly enjoy the great outdoors and all it has to offer.

Bath, NH, was chartered and incorporated in 1761 with 68 equal plots of land granted to 68 families.  The town also held a church and a school at the time, giving those families a leg up on developing the town further.  Bath was named for William Putney, 1st Earl of Bath.  Putney was England’s secretary of war in the mid-1700’s as well as a great Parliamentary speaker.  Bath, along with 15 other New Hampshire towns, was involved in a long-standing border dispute with neighboring Vermont until 1791 when the town was finally brought into the U.S. fold.

Historically, Bath residents have been primarily farmers and loggers, but today the town is seen as a bedroom community with most residents working in a different, larger town such as nearby Haverhill, NH.  Haverhill has over 5000 residents and many of the modern conveniences that come along with a higher population, such as chain stores, restaurants and more.

Bath’s location is one of its finest features – far from the hustle and bustle of today’s work-a-day world, Bath can take you back to another time, a slower time when people moved a more reasonable pace.  In Bath, neighbors help each other instead of looking away when you make eye contact.  In Bath, people keep an eye out for one another, taking care of friends and neighbors when they need it – and even when they don’t.  Life is just a little different in Bath – and a little better.

Bath is a member of School Administrative Unit #23 and operates its own elementary school, the Bath Village School, for children in kindergarten through the sixth grade.  The remaining resident students are tuitioned at the Haverhill Cooperative School District, which includes students from Benton, Haverhill, Piermont and Warren.

Bath is the perfect escape from the noise and pollution of modern life.  Homes are occasionally on the market in Bath, but they can be hard to find.  You need someone who knows New Hampshire’s real estate market inside and out - someone who has their finger on the pulse of buying and selling homes in the Granite State.  That person is Jim Miller of Bean Group.  Jim is courteous and professional and wants to find the home that’s just right for you.  Call Jim at (603) 801-3987 today and see just how easy it can be to buy a home in the growing state of New Hampshire.
