Westmoreland, New Hampshire

Stepping into Westmoreland, New Hampshire, is like stepping into history.  Beautiful old homes and buildings, historic locations and one of the most stunning churches found in all of New England are all just a part of what makes this town so special.  Located near the banks of the Connecticut River in Cheshire County, Westmoreland offers its 1800 or so residents a peaceful place to live, raise a family or retire in a safe and comfortable environment.

Originally granted as one in a line of towns designed to repel attacks from local Native Americans, Westmoreland was first referred to as “Number 2”.  Known by many at the time as “Great Meadows”, the town was not actually incorporated until 1752, eleven years after New Hampshire became its own province.  Governor Benning Wentworth named the town after a relative of his named John Fane, Seventh Earl of Westmoreland.  Many New Hampshire towns, particularly in the southern half of the state, were named for friends and relatives of two specific governors, Benning Wentworth and the man who succeeded him, his nephew, John Wentworth.

Westmoreland was a town of farmers and hunters mostly, though several mills did pop into and back out of existence over the centuries.  The town today is a quiet, non-industrious town with most workers commuting out of town to their jobs.  Westmoreland has a few small businesses, but nothing compared to the city of Keene which lies just ten minutes from the center of Westmoreland.  Keene offers all the city trappings you’d expect to find in a metropolis without the big-city feel.  Keene is home to the Keene State College and boasts a myriad of activities and shopping experiences sure to please anyone. 

Westmoreland is located in a part of the country that still has plenty of undeveloped land and wide-open spaces.  Vermont, to the west, has no large city within fifteen miles of Westmoreland and on the New Hampshire side, Keene is the only true city with twenty.  Living in Westmoreland gives you the escape to tranquility you’ve been looking for.

Westmoreland, NH, is a member of School Administrative Unit #29 and maintains the education of resident students from kindergarten through grade eight at the Westmoreland School.  Students of high school age are tuitioned at the Keene High School, about ten miles away and, with less than 150 students in the first through eighth grades, there are no plans to change the current arrangement.

Westmoreland, NH, is a town with traditional values and a strong moral fiber.  Westmoreland residents are quick to bring you into their extended family and offer you the kind of hospitality New Englanders are so well known for.  Maybe it’s time to become a part of something special – maybe it’s time to buy a home in New Hampshire and start living life the way it was meant to be lived.  If you’d like more information on Westmoreland or any of the other fine New Hampshire communities.
