Barrington, New Hampshire | 300th
Barrington is located in Strafford County in the southeastern
part of New Hampshire. It is adjacent to Dover, Rochester, Madbury, Lee,
Durham, Nottingham, Northwood and Strafford. It was incorporated in 1722 and named for Samuel Shute of
Barrington Hall, colonial governor of Massachusetts and
New Hampshire. The town was slow to settle initially, but by 1810 had 3500 residents.
While Barrington covers 48.5 square miles, its’ population
is still under 10,000 people giving it a true New England small-town feel. Barrington
is drained by the Isinglass and Bellamy Rivers. Swains Lake and Mendum’s Pond are
in the south. The highest point in town is an unnamed summit near its western
border, measuring 610 feet above sea level.
The highest named summit is Bumfagging Hill, at 601 ft. The town is
located entirely in the Piscataqua River watershed.
