Hampstead was once part of Massachusetts as a section of Amesbury and Haverhill until in 1739 a boundary line was fixed making it part of New Hampshire. Originally, the town was known as “Timberland Parish” due to the growth of native trees i the area. Later in 1749, the town was named Hampstead after Hampstead, England.
The town consists of 14 square miles and has a population of approximately 10,000. Just 45 miles north of Boston, Hampstead draws a significant seasonal population and summer campers with its water areas including Sunset Lake, Angle Pond and Big Island Pond.
