Boston Post Cane
Seeking the Oldest Resident in Town
The Selectmen are looking to determine who the oldest resident in New Hampton is for the purpose of awarding the Boston Post Cane.
Brief History – taken in part from The Granite State’s Boston Post Canes, by Barbara Staples:
The idea of the Boston Post Cane came from Edwin Atkins Grozier, owner, editor and publisher of the Boston Post newspaper.  In 1909 he asked Selectmen in New England towns to determine who the Oldest Citizen in town was and the Boston Post would provide a “gold headed cane”, made “of carefully selected Gaboon ebony from the Congo, Africa”, for presentation by the Selectmen, to that individual.  His idea was to have this cane presented to the oldest citizen, and subsequently passed along.  The first recipient of New Hampton’s Boston Post cane was Samuel Colby (1820 – 1911).
If you know of a New Hampton resident who we can honor with this cane, please contact the Selectmen’s Office at 744-3559, or via email to
New Assessed Values for Properties

Taxpayers will soon be notified, by letter, of their new value(s) of each of their properties. This letter will also offer the owners an opportunity to discuss their preliminary values with the assessors. Dates and times to call and schedule appointments, along with dates for those appointments, will be outlined in the letter. These appointments will be held at the Town Office in the 2nd floor meeting room. A preliminary list of values for all properties in New Hampton will be provided to the Board of Selectmen to post in places in Town or click here for the list. Taxpayers are encouraged to schedule an appointment with the assessors to discuss their values and review the sales and other information available during the reviews.
Over the past four years the assessing company of Commerford Nieder Perkins, LLC has performed a cyclical data verification process to measure all properties in the Town of New Hampton. For the final year of the project, 2018, the Company has performed the Revaluation as required by State law every 5 years.
The Company will adhere to the following guidelines … (click here for more)
New Hampton's Second Tax Bill for 2018-2019 Will be Late

New Hampton issues tax bills twice a year to cover the tax year of April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019. The first bill was mailed in May and was due July 6th.  The second bill is expected to be mailed around December 15th and will be due in mid-January.  The second bill cannot be issued until such time the Revaluation and review of preliminary values are complete. The tax rate is not set until the new assessed values are submitted to the State of New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration.
The first bill you received, in late May or early June, was an estimate using the previous year's tax rate. The second bill you receive, will reflect the new tax rate and the new assessed value, which is based on the status of the property as of April 1, 2018.  
Often new owners incorrectly assume their annual taxes will be double their first bill. Individual property tax bills should not be looked at as being one-half the total, nor as covering the first or last 6 months of the year. To determine the correct amount of total taxes for the tax year, the two bills must be added together.

First Trunk or Treat is a Success

New Hampton Police Association, Firefighters Association and New Hampton Community Church teamed up this Halloween to provide a Trunk or Treat experience.  This allowed our local goblins, witches, warlocks, dinosaurs, ninja turtles, zombies and vampires to get candy at a single parking lot, the Community Church parking lot. This limited the desire or need to spend excessive time, walking great distances, to acquire candy by giving community members the opportunity to bring their car to the parking lot, open the trunk, and pass out candy from it. The Police Association had their antique 1967 Galaxy Police Cruiser there, while the Fire Department had their Rescue ATV. The Community Church had a canopy with coffee, hoping to help the parents stay awake as late as their sugar loaded children, and Police Chief Stevens had hotdogs on the grill for those who missed supper.

Beware of Scam Phone Calls

Citizens are AGAIN reporting increasing calls from people demanding they pay money owed to the IRS or else the police will come and arrest them. So far, no one has fallen victim. All calls are coming from out of state. Although the Police Department is usually unable to trace these calls, please contact the New Hampton Police Department at 744-5423, to report them to a police officer for tracking purposes.
