Rumney, New Hampshire

Rumney, New Hampshire, is a small bedroom community town in Grafton County.  With about 1,500 people in this town, it is a secluded settlement that enhances the feel of peace and serenity in the New Hampshire Lakes Region.  Rumney is a great place to settle down and start a new life, or just to own a vacation home, and to come up to relax and get away from the bustling environment and stresses of a more populated city.  Rumney has a lot to offer to its residents, whether it be the lakes located in northern Rumney or the fantastic school district that educates its children.

Rumney was first granted to Samuel Olmstead in 1761, as well as a few other settlers from the towns of East Haddam and Colchester, both of which are Connecticut River towns.  Governor Benning Wentworth came up with the name Rumney based off of Robert Marsham, who held the title of second Baron Romney.  The grant originally stated that all families involved were to meet the terms within five years, however not all grantees were able to do this within the specified time period of the charter, so in 1767 the town was regranted to a different group of settlers, led by Daniel Brainard.  The town boundaries were established in 1784, and Rumney's Stinson Lake was named after a man called David Stinson, who was killed by Indians while hunting in 1752.

Rumney, New Hampshire, is located in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire.  This makes it an excellent place to live for anybody who frequently enjoys swimming, fishing, boating, or just taking advantage of the great outdoors.  Rumney is also located relatively close to the New Hampshire White Mountain National Forest, so it suits people who also enjoy hiking, biking, mountain climbing, camping, back packing, or nature/wildlife observation.  There is also a wide variety of activities to participate in inside the town itself.  An active theater community is also an excellent way to get to know some of the people in the town.
