New Hampton Designated a "NH HeartSafe Community"

At the Selectmen's meeting on December 14th
the New Hampton Fire Department was awarded recognition
for their efforts to improve survival from sudden cardiac arrest.

The primary goal of the program is to increase survival rates from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Individual communities can develop and implement lifesaving networks that focus on coordinating local resources to prevent sudden cardiac arrest from becoming sudden cardiac death.

Volunteers Help to Shape the Future of the
Kelley-Drake Conservation Area

A Special Place in New Hampton

Community volunteers have been working all summer and fall to clear cellar holes and build hiking trails at the Kelley-Drake Conservation Area in New Hampton.  This fall the trails system was laid out by Lew Shelly, Snowhawk, LLC, and since then volunteers have been diligently working to clear brush and blowdowns, build rock steps, water bars, cribbing and cutting switchbacks along the steep terrain of the hillside. The area is open year-round and is not only ideal for hiking, but also snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, hunting or just enjoying a walk along the old stone walls and open meadow.
The Kelley Drake Conservation Area signifies the origins of New Hampton. In 1775 Samuel Kelly (1733-1813) brought his wife and two young sons from Exeter, NH to New Hampton and built a log cabin adjacent to Kelly Pond (now known as Pemigewasset Lake).
