Waterville Valley, New Hampshire

Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, is famed for its ski and snowboard resort.  This is an obvious dream town for anybody who greatly enjoys riding the slopes or tubing.  Be that as it may, the actual population of the town is extremely low.  There are only roughly 270 people in the entire town, which only has about 4 people per square mile.  The seclusion and environment of this town makes it perfect for anybody looking to get away from city life, or anybody who is already used to this kind of atmosphere, but is looking for a new start or a vacation home.

Waterville was originally incorporated in 1829, from a combination of two grants known as the Gillis and Foss Grant, and the John Raymond Grant.  In the beginning, the town was a popular summer resort.  In 1911, the Weeks Act was initiated, allowing the government to purchase land for stream-flow protection, and to maintain the purchased lands as national forests.  The first actual land purchases for the New Hampshire White Mountain National Forest was in 1914, and as a result Waterville lost a significant amount of land.  The development of Waterville towards becoming a winter recreational area began in 1965, and in 1967 an act of the General Court caused Waterville to adopt the name Waterville Valley.
