Why Claremont?


Settled in 1762, Claremont, New Hampshire is conveniently located along the banks of the Connecticut and Sugar Rivers in the beautiful Connecticut River Valley. With an early history of textile manufacturing and machining, the mill district along the Sugar River showcases the skyline and embodies the pride of quality production that built this City.

Today, that rich heritage can be seen in the design of the City Center and in the architecture of its many historic buildings. While significant adaptive reuse of these historic buildings is occurring in the City Center for many types of residential and commercial uses, new commercial investment has also taken place on Sullivan, Twistback, Plains and River Roads in the industrial lands.

While Claremont is home to a number of diverse companies, healthcare, precision technology and wood based manufacturing clusters provide an important part of the employment base. The workforce is drawn from Claremont and the many communities of the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee region in New Hampshire and Windsor County in Vermont.

The City of Claremont has targeted growth in technology, manufacturing, the City Center and housing. We welcome inquiries from start up and existing businesses as well as those looking to expand into our area. The Department of Planning and Development is available to offer support and information on real estate, finance, zoning and building codes, as well as demographic and traffic information for site selectors.
