I am a native of a small community in northern New Hampshire. The town's offical name is Northumberland; many years ago an area of the town had a grove of Maple trees where a communtiy was built and people started calling this section of the town, the Grove Town which later became nicknamed Groveton,and name that still sticks today. Groveton has seen some struggles in recent years with the downturn in the economy and the closing of the local paper mills. The area is starting to regroup and has a lot to offer. We reside in the heart of the north country plenty of local mountians to climb, rivers to kayak and fish and lakes and ponds to enjoy.
This is a picture of Nash Stream last Fall and Percy's Peaks in the background. This local climb offer's beautiful area views and in August some of the best wild blueberry picking ever.
Here is part of the view from the top of Percy's Peak.
Our Comunity is home to Speedway 51 that is currently undergoing many improvements and upgrades with lots of events scheduled all summer long and into the fall, It is rumored that there will be several winter events coming our way as well. Keep posted on the events at http://www.speedway51int.com/ Here is this weeks event:

The Connecticut River offers great fishing and peaceful enjoyment. Bald Eagles are often viewed along the riverbanks as well as Moose and deer. truly an outdoor lover paradise.
The town has plenty of business opportunities avaialbe for investors at unbeleiveable prices, and homes are very reasonable as well. The communtiy is very welcoming ; the staff at the town office are very helpful and are there to answer questions and service everyone that asks for information.
