Freedom, NH

Freedom gets its name from a conflict between Effingham and what was once called "North Effingham." Religious differences caused North Effingham to make a clean break in 1831, and they called the new town Freedom.

In early August, the town celebrates Freedom Old Home Week. Nine days of activities include a parade through town, a lobster dinner, an outdoor The old Freedom, NH Town Hall - Click for a larger image!cocktail party, water and land sports as well as an annual craft sale.

Allard House & Works Museum on the village square, run by the Freedom Historical Society is open Saturdays from 10 AM to noon, and other hours by appointment. The museum captures "a day in the life" just before the advent of electricity.

Lodging in Freedom is limited: Hatfield's Bed and Breakfast, 83 Old Portland Road, (603.539.6465) has three rooms. Freedom House, at 13 Old Portland Road, is no longer offers lodging. Camping is available at Danforth Bay Camping & RV Resort, offering 300 campsites on 185 acres, a large swimming pool, a convenience store, year-round cabins and half a mile of frontage on Ossipee Lake. They also operate The Bluffs RV Resort (active adults, 50+) at 196 Shawtown Road. Totem Pole Park is a condominium campground, on Lake Road.

The usual conveniences can be found at the Freedom Village Store (photo ) offering "quality consigned goods, carefully chosen purchased merchandise, quality beverages and food" on a brief daily schedule (see their website) but dining will require a trip to Tamworth or Ossipee, both nearby.

Freedom is a great location by itself, or a hallway stopping point for those traveling between the White Mountains and the seacoast.
