More About Windham New Hampshire
Windham NH was initially home to the Pawtucket Indians. The area was first settled in 1719 by Scottish immigrants. It was formally known as “Nutfield” when the region included Derry and Londonderry, which are now neighboring towns to Windham.
In 1721, the first settlers petitioned for a separate community, and in 1742, their request was approved by Governor Benning Wentworth, who was the colonial governor of New Hampshire at the time. Windham was the second town commissioned by Governor Benning Wentworth. The town was originally a parish of Londonderry, and speculations say its name “Windham” was culled from Windham in Ireland or Sir Charles Windham, a member of Parliament from 1734 – 1750 and a good friend to the serving governor. Windham is situated in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, and it is considered a residential community. On its vast landscape lies a good number of historic landmarks.
The Searles School, Searles Castle, the Town Centre, and the Armstrong Memorial Building are located in Windham. Edward F. Searles, who was an interior decorator and antique collector, designed the Searles Castle, one of Windham’s most prominent landmarks. The architecture was modeled by Henry Vaughn, who tried to mirror the style of the Stanton Harcourt Manor in England. The structure was completed in 1915. It is open to the public for rentals. Another historic landmark is the plaque constructed by Mr. Searles in honor of Governor Samuel Dinsmoor. It is located on Jenny’s hill, a few meters from his birthplace.
