Situated on the Connecticut River in Grafton County, in western New Hampshire, the small town of Piermont was incorporated by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth in 1764, and settled in 1768. Largely an agricultural community in the beginning, today the town is home to two large summer camps, and other small ones, given its location along the river and Lake Tarleton, named for Colonel William Tarleton, a delegate to the 1791 Constitutional Convention. Aaron Lane, the first permanent settler in the Mojave Desert area that later became Victorville, California, grew up in Piermont, and his biography describes the town in the mid-1800s. Piermont is south of Haverhill, north-northeast of Orford, and immediately east of Bradford, New Hampshire.
