Nestled between Woodsville and North Haverhill our residents exemplify the Live Free or Die spirit; strong and fiercely independent but bound with a commitment to the community. Blustery winters, wet spring (we call it mud season here), pleasant summers and breathtakingly colorful autumn make Benton a quiet and special place.
Most of our residents live here year-round but there are also many seasonal residents who love the serenity and beauty of the White Mountains. If you plan to make a trip to the area in the Fall make sure to include Benton while enjoying the foliage. Don't be upset if someone calls you a leaf-peeper.
We look forward to seeing you,
Your Benton Select Board.
