Scholarships for New Hampton Students
 
Sarah Dow MacGregor Scholarships
 
These scholarships are available to students of New Hampton residents.  The 2022 scholarship applications are due to the Selectmen’s Office by May 31, 2022 at 3:00 PM.

Sarah Dow MacGregor came from Kennebunk, Maine to attend New Hampton School.  After graduating from the school at the age of seventeen she was married, on the Christmas day following, to Walter R. Dow, a local boy.  They lived on Old Bristol Road, in a home which they built and occupied for many years. The second floor of the house was purposely left unfinished so that the young people of the town could meet there for dances.

Although Sarah was a wealthy woman, they always lived very simply, preferring to use this inheritance for worthy causes.  Always thinking of the needs of others, Sarah carefully planned the bequests in her will to bring happiness when she was no longer living. One of her largest bequests was made to the Town of New Hampton, to be used to receive education beyond what is furnished at public expense.

New Hampton ... Iowa???

The History Corner:
 “New Hampton... Iowa???”
 
In 1855 the Postmaster of Chickasaw Center, Iowa was Mr. Osgood Gowin. Inspired by his old hometown back in the Granite State, Mr. Gowin suggested a name-change to “New Hampton,” and it stuck! Only 23 miles from Nashua, Iowa (also named by a couple of native New Hampshirites), New Hampton, Iowa flourished. In 1980 the “city with expanding horizons” celebrated its 125th anniversary with a commemorative carbonated drink that tells the story of its name on the back.* Note also the photo of the New Hampton Carnegie Library – the Iowa version of the Gordon-Nash!  
 
* The can, purchased (empty) for the New Hampton Historical Society, was acquired on eBay.

2020-2023 Full Cyclical Revaluation
Letters Sent to Some Property Owners

Town of New Hampton News Release

     New Hampton has contracted with the assessing firm of Commerford Nieder Perkins, LLC (CNP) for the four-year revaluation of property for the Town of New Hampton.  They continue to visit all of the properties in the town, but will do so in sections.  The Maps to be visited in 2022 are R01 through R03, R12 through R15, R19 & R20, and U8 & & U9.
     If the homeowner is not home, the appraiser will leave a notice stating that they visited the property and measured the buildings, and also indicate that the homeowner will receive a letter in the future, which will provide information regarding the interior inspection processClick here for an example of their letter.
     Due to the continued issues with COVID19, the data collector may perform an interior inspection if both parties are comfortable with doing so and a mask will be worn by both parties. An interior inspection typically should not take more than 10 minutes. No property will be entered unless there is someone 18 years of age or older at home at the time of the visit. They will be looking for information such as: quality of construction, year built, functional utility, condition, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, type of floors, type of interior walls, and type of heat.
 
Completing the Revaluation Process 
     In the late fall of 2023, the final values will be set for all properties based on the current market conditions at that time.  Each property owner will receive a letter with their new assessed value and detailed information regarding taxpayer hearings if there are questions or concerns regarding the value. Once these hearings have been completed the new valuations will be used to generate the new tax rate and tax bills.  If a property owner is still aggrieved by their value, they may then file an abatement with the town by March 1st, 2024.
