Our Town

Town of FreedomIn between the Lakes Region and the White Mountain Region of NH, Freedom is a small town surrounding a little village. Take a walk through the village on a Saturday evening and you’ll encounter few cars, but enjoy the white picket fences, well-kept homes and large barns that hint of the towns history.

Freedom? In 1831 the village of North Effingham voted to secede from Effingham, and in 1832, the new town celebrated its independence by changing its name to “Freedom“.

For a tangible taste of Freedom history, visit The Historical Society’s charming museum where lemonade and cookies are served to visitors on summer afternoons. Members can also provide a quick sketch of the history of Freedom as seen in the houses standing along the quiet village streets.

Every year in August the community of Freedom celebrates “Old Home Week”, a New Hampshire tradition that was officially recognized by Proclamation in the New Hampshire State Legislature in 1913.

In the Village you’ll find a Protestant church, Masonic Lodge and the Freedom Village Store: a non-profit, volunteer run store where you can get a cup of coffee, buy a newspaper and catch up with your neighbors. Just around the corner, the Public Library is open several days a week.
