New London, New Hampshire

A quiet little community of less than 5000 people, New London, New Hampshire is a town out of history.  Old homes and buildings, quaint shops and smiling faces are a few of the common sites in this classic New England-style village tucked in the western-central part of the state.  Natural beauty surrounds you as you stroll through the town’s narrow streets, tranquil surroundings, and small, cozy shops.  At every turn, friendly faces smile and greet you as you try to figure out why you haven’t bought a home here yet.

This area was first named Heidelburg in 1753, though incorrectly transcribed as “Hiddleburg” in the original grant.  Twenty years later, in 1773, the town was regranted as a part of the Alexandria Grant and named “Alexandria Addition”.  This name didn’t settle well, so residents renamed the town “New Londonderry” when it was finally incorporated 1779.  The name was soon shortened to New London and has since remained as such.

Surrounded by thick woods, ponds and streams, New London was a community of hunters, farmers and fishermen.  Without enough water power to sufficiently run mills, New London residents tilled the soil, raised livestock, and utilized the forests and waterways for food.  Today, the community is very family-oriented and is a perfectly located “home base” for those who enjoy traveling the New Hampshire countryside experiencing all the Granite State has to offer.

New London is located just off I-89, near Lake Sunapee.  Watersports are the activity of the day during the warmer months, while winter sports are the “call of the wild” during the colder months of the year.  With dozen of lakes, pond, rivers and streams within five miles of New London, there’s always something to do.  Kayaking, swimming, fishing (regular and ice), hiking, camping, ice climbing, skiing, sledding, snowmobiling – the list in never ending.  Outdoor activities abound in this region of the state, but that’s not all there is to do.  This part of New Hampshire is known for its antique shops and Mom & Pop general stores as well.  Walking into one of these is like stepping into Ike’s General Store on “The Waltons”.  Old wooden floors, penny candy, pickle barrels, homemade preserves, hand made gifts – you’ll find all that and a friendly smile that accompanies each and every transaction.  Things seem to move a little slower in New London, NH.
