Overview
This area was part of Cumberland or the Society Land which had been set aside by the Masonian Proprietors for their own estates. When first settled in 1753 by the Lynde family, it was known as Lyndeborough Addition. The Monadnock hills cut residents off from Lyndeborough's church and school, so in 1791 they petitioned for the right to form their own town. The name was chosen to indicate the town's location on a level, fertile ground between the hills. Greenfield is the location of the Crotched Mountain Foundation, a rehabilitation center for handicapped children; the Crotched Mountain Ski Area; and Greenfield State Park, on Otter Lake.
