About New Hampshire


New Hampshire

New Hampshire is in the New England region and borders Canada. The state was named after the southern English county of Hampshire. New Hampshire ranks 44th in land area, 46th in total area of the 50 states, and 42nd in population.

It became the first post-colonial sovereign nation in the Americas when it broke off from Great Britain in January 1776, and was one of the original thirteen states that founded the United States of America six months later. In June 1788, it became the ninth state to ratify the United States Constitution, bringing that document into effect. New Hampshire was the first U.S. state to have its own state constitution.
It is known internationally for the New Hampshire primary, the first primary in the U.S. presidential election cycle. It has no general sales tax, nor is personal income (other than interest and dividends) taxed at either the state or local level.
Its license plates carry the state motto: "Live Free or Die". The state's nickname, "The Granite State", refers to its geology and its tradition of self-sufficiency.
New Hampshire's major recreational attractions include skiing, snowmobiling and other winter sports, hiking and mountaineering, observing the fall foliage, summer cottages along many lakes and the seacoast. The White Mountain National Forest links the Vermont and Maine portions of the Appalachian Trail.

New Hampshire has approximately 24,000 horses.

Gracefully Updated Antique with Level Land

Peterborough, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire

A bucolic setting is just the beginning for this beautiful, antique four-bedroom Farmhouse. Surrounded by Nature Conservancy land and abutting the 228 acre Casalis State Forest, this home was originally built in 1780 but has an effective age of 2003. It is a haven for wildlife, and it's pretty nice for people too! Enter the spacious eat-in kitchen directly from the two-car garage and enjoy the view to the pond and barn while you have your breakfast, or step directly out to the deck for an evening barbeque. The dining room has a comforting woodstove for intimate dinners, or invite the whole family to a room big enough for a table for eight. The front-to-back living room also has a wood stove, dramatic exposed beams, and direct access to the screened-in porch. There are two bedrooms on the first floor with a full bath (with a clawfoot tub), if you prefer single-level living, or choose a master on the second floor, where there are two more bedrooms and another full bath, plus an extra room for an office or playroom. Enjoy the seasonal mountain views from the second floor too! Built-ins and closets everywhere make for plenty of storage. There are two FHA Thermopride heating systems, central A/C, an alarm system, a sprinkler system and a whole house generator. Set back from the road with a paved circular driveway, beautiful stone walls, plenty of level land, and just minutes from downtown Peterborough, this property is a place where your dreams will come true.
