Piermont

A small town with a farming heritage located on the Connecticut River in Grafton County, western New Hampshire. According to the 2010 Census, our population is about 790, but during the summer and fall months that increases significantly due to its seasonal residents and the two nationally renowned summer camps, Camp Walt Whitman and Kingswood Camp for Boys. The Town boasts a large number of small home-based businesses and farm stores, all of which thrive and enjoy the rural location.

Situated on the Connecticut River just west of the White Mountain National Forest, this town’s name is taken from Piedmont in the Italian Alps, a re-spelling of the Italian Piemonte. The town is home to Lake Tarleton, which once was on the property of Colonel William Tarleton. The Colonel kept a tavern in Piermont, fought in the Revolution, was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1791, and a member of the presidential Electoral College in 1804.

Round Barn

This barn, which is actually 16-sided, was built in 1906 and is one of the last remaining round barns in New Hampshire.
