Strafford is a town located in the Southeastern part of New Hampshire in the Seacoast region of the state. It is situated in the Western portion of Strafford County and encompasses a total area of 51.4 square miles, 2.2 of which is water. As of the 2010 United States Census, Strafford was home to 3,991 people.
The land that now comprises Strafford was once a part of the nearby town of Barrington. It was officially incorporated as its own town in 1820, gleaning its name from the county in which it was established. The town includes two villages, known as Center Strafford and Bow Lake Village and was once the home of Charles Simic, a U.S. poet laureate. In its earlier year, a local state militia company adopted the town’s name, calling themselves the Strafford Guards. The Strafford Guards have since been incorporated into the New Hampshire National Guard.
