Welcome to the website for the town of Benton, New Hampshire. We are located in the "North Country" in the White Mountains about 60 miles south of Canada.

Nestled between the river towns of Woodsville and North Haverhill and the mountain towns of Easton, Landaff, Woodstock and Warren, 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.
