About Us

“Sanbornton is rooted in its past, living in the present, and planning for its future.”

Sanbornton embodies all that one expects to find in an old New England town. Our historic bones may be seen in our old buildings. Three churches, the Town Hall, Lane Tavern (now housing the Sanbornton Historical Society), the old Woodman Academy (now our town’s library) and a large number of homes. All built by our early settlers.

Our rural character shows in rolling fields framed by stone walls, some with grazing cattle and others offering an occasional moose, bear, or fox. Agriculture is alive and well as seen by a number of farms and farm stands.

Guests are welcomed to both a large time share inn or several small bed and breakfast establishments. Visitors can join in the town’s varied activities of hiking, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling on rolling mountains that change from green to scarlet to white with the seasons.

Swimming, skating or boating on lakes that wear sapphires in summer and diamond ice in winter. Golfers can enjoy a day at one of the town’s two golf courses. Local church suppers, craft and flea-markets, Celebrate Sanbornton Day and other ‘home grown’ events abound. In addition to Sanbornton Central School, we are also home to Sant Bani Ashram and the Sant Bani School.
