AT HOME IN GREENLAND NEW HAMPSHIRE – Greenland
is a small town right next to Portsmouth and Stratham. The
total geographical size of Greenland is only 10.5 square miles, and the
current population is about 3,400 residents.
Quaint and charming, Greenland was
originally a parish of Portsmouth dating back to 1638. Greenland
came into its own in 1721, receiving “full town privileges”
which meant being able to collect taxes from its residents, among
other things. Imagine, collecting taxes from residents….
home mostly to quiet residential areas and some very small condo
communities, has some very nice pastoral areas, and a little bit of
commercial mixed in here and there. Located between Route 1
on the eastern side and Great Bay on the western side, everything in
the area is within a very short drive from Greenland.
