NH - Stratham

One of the Prettiest Communities in New Hampshire

Stratham is a small town, covering about 15 square miles, next door to Exeter and Hampton, and is just about 10 minutes from Portsmouth.   The current population of Stratham is about 7,000 residents.  Stratham was settled in 1631, and became its own incorporated town in 1716.  At that time, it was the 6th town in New Hampshire to be incorporated.

Stratham is home to rural working farms, new and newer home subdivisions and condominium developments, some smaller shopping centers, and wonderful peaceful country scenery.  The townspeople have done a very nice job of balancing quiet residential neighborhoods and commercial development.  Right alongside all of that are bucolic rolling farmlands.
