Antrim is a town in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 2,449 at the 2000 census. The 2009 population was estimated to be 2,644. The primary settlement in the town, where over 56% of the population resides, is defined by the U.S. Census Bureau as the Antrim census-designated place (CDP) and is located at the intersection of U.S. Route 202 and New Hampshire Route 31. The town of Antrim also includes the villages of Antrim Center, North Branch, Clinton Village and South Village.

History

Settled in 1741, this town did not get its incorporated name until 1778. It was named for County Antrim in Ireland, which was the native home of the land's owner, Philip Riley. Scots-Irish settlers established a Presbyterian church in Antrim in 1788.

With falls providing water power, Great Brook was once lined with over twenty mills along its course from Gregg Lake to the Contoocook River. Commercial development centered on South Antrim. Cutlery was the big industry in this small town, beginning with the manufacturing of apple-paring machines in 1864. The manufacturing of cutlery continued in Antrim through 1989. The town is now largely a bedroom community for Peterborough and Hillsborough. It was home to the now-defunct Nathaniel Hawthorne College.
