Overview
Though settled prior to the Revolution, this community was not incorporated as Antrim until 1777. It was originally part of the Society Land, or Cumberland, named for the Duke of Cumberland, who was King George II's son and commander of English troops in the war with France. This large tract of land adjacent to Mount Monadnock had been set aside by the Portsmouth Proprietors for private estates. The land was later purchased by Philip Riley, who named the town for County Antrim in Ireland, his native home. Nathaniel Hawthorne College was established in Antrim in 1962; the school closed in 1988.
