Overview
Situated on the Connecticut River just west of the White Mountain National Forest, this town was named for Piedmont in the Italian Alps. The majority of those named in the charter were titled Honorable or Esquire, or had a military title. Though the charter was issued in 1764, the first settlements were not made until about 1768. Lake Tarleton, on the town's eastern border, was once on the property of Colonel William Tarleton, a tavernkeeper who was a delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1791, and member of the presidential Electoral College in 1804.
