Belmont

About Belmont 


Initially incorporated in 1727 as a part of the nearby town of Gilmanton, Belmont was separated by an act of the Legislature in 1859 and adopted the name, Belmont, in 1869. It was home to William Badger who served as NH Governor for two consecutive terms beginning in 1834.
 
The current population is 7,343, although the seasonal influx of temporary residents in both the summer and winter recreational seasons greatly increases that number. 

Nineteen miles of State highways and sixty-five miles of Town highways provide excellent transportation routes throughout the community. Three Town highways have also been designated as Scenic Roads and municipal water and sewer serve the population centers.
 
Like much of New Hampshire, Belmont's history centers on the flowage of the Tioga River and the mills that clustered along its banks. The Town Seal indicates the importance that this industry played in Belmont's past.
