Originally part of Exeter, Epping was settled as early as 1710, and became an incorporated town in 1741, named for the English town by that name. After the Revolutionary War, many of Epping’s residents moved to Monmouth, Maine, when General Henry Darborn offered free land to his soldiers. Located in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, the more densely populated part of the town is centered on NH Route 27, west of NH Route 125, but also includes the area in the eastern part of the town known as Camp Hedding, the site of a United Methodist campground formed in 1862. Also in Epping is the Leddy Center, an antique playhouse, and the New England Dragway and Star Speedway. William Plumer and Benjamin Franklin Prescott, the 13th and 36th governors of New Hampshire, respectively, were Epping residents.
