Strafford County New Hampshire

Strafford County, New Hampshire, is located in the east/southeast portion of the state, just north of Rockingham County.  Strafford County was one of the original five counties set up in New Hampshire in 1769.  The county gets its name from William Wentworth, 2nd Earl of Strafford, who was wrongly thought to have been an ancestor of Governor John Wentworth.  While the two were distantly related, William Wentworth had no children and therefore Governor Wentworth could not have been his descendant. 

The county seat in Strafford County is Dover, NH, and has been since the official organization of the county in 1771.  In 1840, the overall size of the county was reduced with the creation of Belknap County to the northwest.  With barely over a dozen towns within its confines, Strafford County is one of the smaller counties in the state.  Strafford County towns include Barrington, Dover, Durham, Farmington, Lee, Madbury, Middleton, Milton, New Durham, Rochester, Rollinsford, Somersworth, and Strafford (the town).  The two largest, Dover and Rochester, are actually cities and account for over half the population of the entire county.  The smallest towns are Madbury and Middleton, both with populations under 1800 people.

Strafford County is full of trees, lakes, rivers and wonderful people.  The larger towns and cities have shopping malls, fine dining, entertainment venues and more, while the smaller towns offer peace, quiet and a slower pace.  Slow pace or not, there’s always something going on within county lines.  In Lee, for example, you’ll find the Lee Raceway, a NASCAR-approved third-mile racetrack with races every weekend during the months when the weather permits it. 

There are several State Parks in Strafford County which allows residents and visitors alike to enjoy the pristine beauty that southeastern New Hampshire offers.  A popular tract in Strafford County is the “Antique Alley”, a stretch of Route 4 that passes through the towns of Barrington, Northwood, and Epsom, which has antique shops by the dozen. 

Strafford County has much to offer everyone – it’s quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing counties in all of New England.  There are many homes available for sale in Strafford County, but it helps to have someone in your corner who knows the state, the counties and the communities within.  That person is Jim Miller of Bean Group.  Call Jim right now at (603) 801-3987.  He’s courteous, professional and he wants to make you the newest New Hampshire resident.  Jim understands New Hampshire’s real estate market and he wants to be your buyer agent.  Let Jim help you into the home of your dreams – call him today!
