Warner, New Hampshire

Only fifteen minutes out of Concord, New Hampshire, you will find Warner, a small community of just over 2000 people.  This little town exudes classic New England style and its residents strive to deliver the feeling of “being home” with everyone who visits.  Small country store, classic white church next to the little town hall, no traffic lights – that’s Warner, NH in a nutshell.  A friendly smile, a happy, “Good morning” and hearty handshake are the residents’ most customary greetings.  Far removed from the “averted gaze” of city life, Warner welcomes you into the fold with a hug and a cup of hot cider.

The area that was to become Warner began its modern existence as land granted by the Massachusetts government in 1735, six years before New Hampshire officially became a state.  At that time it was referred to as “Number One”, the first in a string of numbered land grants that were designed to act as future settlements to repel Indian attacks.  The territory was regranted to new settlers in 1749 – who promptly renamed their little village Rye-town, or Jenness-town, for Richard Jenness, a settler who relocated from Rye, NH.  The area was regranted yet again in 1767 to Jonathan Barnard and several others who renamed the town “Amesbury”.  Finally, in 1774, Governor John Wentworth incorporated the town and named it for his friend, council member Jonathan Warner.  Warner was one of the last towns officially developed under rule of the English Monarchy.

Warner had little waterpower, so most of the residents were skilled tradesmen, craftsmen, hunters or farmers.  Some of the farms still exist today, but most have been lost to the years.  Today, Warner acts as a bedroom community, mostly for those working in Concord, just ten miles away.  With the city that close, Warner residents can enjoy all the trappings of the big city without actually having to live in one.  Manchester, NH, the state’s largest city, lies just ten minutes south of Concord, so Warner residents are able to enjoy everything that city offers as well and still be home in time for dinner.  Unless, of course, you decide to take advantage of one of the many fine and casual dining experiences found in either of these modern, yet friendly, cities.  Perhaps a movie or some live entertainment to cap off the evening?  It’s all within the city limits and within a half hour of your front door when you live in Warner.

Warner is a member of SAU# 65, the Kearsarge Regional School District, which includes the towns of Bradford, Newbury, New London, Springfield, Sutton and Wilmot, in addition to Warner.  Warner maintains its own elementary school in the form of Simonds Elementary School.  Students in grades six through eight attend the Kearsarge Regional Middle School and high school students attend the Kearsarge Regional High School.  The schools are located in New London and North Sutton, respectively.
