New Durham is most fortunate to have within it’s boundaries, a large number of water bodies, the largest of which is Merrymeeting Lake, famed for it’s pristine waters. The purity of the water led to New Hampshire Fish and Game Department setting up a fish hatchery. The Community is also fortunate to have panoramic  views of Mount Washington, Mount Chocora, Mount Bett, Mount Jessie, Mount Rattlesnake, Mount Rand, Mount Caverley and Prospect Mountain. Much of the land space is still open and avails many recreational opportunities to the community residents such as snowmobiling, hiking, mountain bike riding etc. The natural splendor of the mountains and lakes attracts many visitors and seasonal residents. Current population is just a little under 2,500 and growing, but has a good hometown atmosphere. There are many active farms in the area involving Christmas Tree growing, peaches, berries, apples, greenhouse plants, and dairy produce.

New Durham is well served by Route 11 providing the community with gateway access to the seacoast of New Hampshire thereby making it commutable to Rochester, Dover and Portsmouth.
