Welcome to the Town of Northwood official website!
Northwood, a vibrant town in southeastern New Hampshire, was founded in 1773 when its first settlers successfully petitioned the Governor's Council requesting separation from Nottingham. Since this section of Nottingham had been known as the great north woods, the newly formed town was called Northwood.
Though thousands of motorists each day see our town only as they hurry along our eight-mile "main street," some call it home. 4,255 (2011 census data) persons are full-time residents and about twice as many have second homes here. Though Northwood is sometimes called a bedroom community, there are more than one hundred small businesses in town, employing from one to twenty-five workers each.
Northwood is proud of its nine lakes and ponds, its mountain views, miles of country roads, and its many lovely old homes and public buildings.
