Antrim was settled in 1741, incorporated in 1777, and named in 1778, after the native region of its principle landowner, Philip Riley. Contributing to the expansion of the area were the availability of natural falls providing water power, encouraging the establishment of more than twenty mills along the course of Great Brook, from Gregg Lake to the Contoocook River. Now largely a residential community, Antrim, in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, includes the unincorporated villages of Antrim Center, Clinton Village, North Branch, and South Village. Antrim is drained by the Contoocook River and its North Branch, as well as Great Brook. Gregg Lake, Willard Pond, and Bald Mountain are in the western part of the town.
