Historyedit

Stratham Hill Park c 1905

Stratham was settled in 1631 and incorporated in 1716 The area, called Winnicutt by the Pennacook Indians, was known as Squamscott Patent or Point of Rocks because of its location between Great Bay and the Squamscott River The sixth town in the colony to be incorporated, the town was named for Wriothesley Russell, Baron Howland of Streatham, a friend of New Hampshire Royal Governor Samuel Shute3

The town is unusual among New England settlements of its size in having been comprehensively mapped in 1793 by Phinehas Merrill It is therefore possible to identify how many of the extant buildings of the town predate the map

Each summer the town hosts the Stratham Fair, held at Stratham Hill Park
