Tamworth

The town of Tamworth has a charm comparable to a Norman Rockwell painting. It’s something you have to see when you stop by, just over the West Ossipee border. Tamworth is home to roughly 2,900 people (per 2015 census), as well as a vibrant historical/cultural scene, nestled among the rural farmlands and welcoming spirit of this hidden granite state gem. Chartered under English rule by King George III to Governor Benning Wentworth in 1766, merely ten years before the American Revolution, the simple country charm and humbling history make Tamworth a unique place to rest or nest, while enjoying every second of it.

Tamworth’s quaint, countryside aesthetic converges with a rich historical background. Take a visit to the Remick Country Doctor Museum and Farm, and you’ll know what we mean. Nestled in the heart of town, you’ll find past and present coming together, as you explore historic farmlands, buildings, and numerous experience-based programs which put you at the heart of the action. The historical and agricultural experiences are truly unique, and guaranteed to put a smile on young and old faces. Tamworth is also home to artisan shops, carrying a variety of exquisitely crafted local goods, quality food products, a Farmer’s Market, and those fresh maple syrup bottles your relatives will want for Christmas. Summertime theater is also performed at The Barnstormers Theater, the regions longest running summer theater, which dates back to 1931. Children and people of all ages can create memories and have a  a world of fun at the our member campgrounds , and outings to  White Lake Speedway playing miniature golf, go-kart racing, a variety of arcade games, and so much more! 

We don’t know what “life in the fast lane” means here, but we like to assume it’s roughly as fast as one of our babbling brooks, which pours outward over a green, picturesque landscape of farms and quintessential New England beauty. Bring your camera, pastels, journals, your hunger for knowledge and everything else you can fit in your duffle bag, and find yourself consumed with beauty and new experiences, in a place that can only be described as timeless. Here you’ll find a welcoming community, and endless opportunities for recreation, as well as settling down and becoming part of our local family.

Tamworth

Five picturesque villages - Tamworth, Whittier, South Tamworth, Chocorua, and Wonalancet - make up the town of Tamworth. Residents of all villages, with Mount Chocorua as their backdrop, have not only the natural beauty of the surrounding areas to appreciate but also a strong community. Tamworth Village has been featured as a backdrop for many postcards, calendars, and puzzles. Flowing brooks, scenic vistas, and a broad network of hiking, biking and skiing trails provide a natural playground to people of all ages visiting the Tamworth area. Rent or bring your own canoes or kayaks to explore the beautiful rivers that flow through town. The town is also host to many charitable organizations helping others in the area that have been in existence for many years. With the Tamworth Community Nurse Association, which provides free nursing service to Tamworth residents, the Tamworth Caregivers, and many other grassroots organizations, there is a strong sense of support and community here. The community is a strong supporter of the arts, with the presence of the Barnstormers Theatre in the Village as well as the Arts Council of Tamworth that hosts performances and educational opportunities for young people. Remick Country Doctor and Farm Museum hosts events that fill out the rest of the year, focusing on such seasonal activities as ice harvesting, maple sugaring, hearth cooking, and holiday dinners. Each year, the town hosts the Tamworth family day on the 4th of July, complete with a parade, music and food in the afternoon, followed by fireworks in the evening. The parade starts in the village and continues to the elementary school grounds. Visit www.tamworthnh.org.
