We live in Fremont but we know areas all over southern New Hampshire.
- Fremont was once part of Brentwood known as Poplin, which was incorporated as a separate town in 1764. In 1783, by act of Legislature, Daniel Brown and 20 other families were split from Poplin and annexed to the Parish of Hawke (Danville) for parochial purposes. The Town’s name was changed to Fremont in 1854, in honor of the very popular General John C. Fremont. General Fremont was the first candidate of the Republican Party in the presidential election of 1856, losing to James Buchanan, and the first territorial governor of Arizona, 1878-1883.
- Epping is growing! Situated at the intersections of highways and byways of southern NH Epping has been growing. Beach goers stop in Epping on their way to Hampton Beach. The area is a popular route to the mountain region for thos wanting to avoid the interstates. Motorcyclist pass through on warm summer days headed for touring rides through the scenic areas north of Epping.
- Exeter http://exeternh.gov/
One of the four original townships in the province, Exeter originally included Newmarket, Newfields, Brentwood, Epping and Fremont. On July 4, 1639, 35 freemen of Exeter signed the Exeter Combination, a document written by Reverend Wheelwright to establish their own government. The settlers hunted, planted and fished. Others tended cattle and swine, or made shakes and barrel staves.
