Claremont is a city in Sullivan County, New Hampshire. Settled by Moses Spafford and David Lynde in 1762, the town was granted by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth in 1764. During the Industrial Revolution, the town prospered due to the availability of water power from the Sugar River, with several large factories built along the stream, manufacturing a variety of products, some of which are still in operation, while others are subjects for historical preservation projects. The Connecticut River forms the western border of the city, as well as the boundary between New Hampshire and Vermont, and the Sugar River flows eat to west through the center of the city, emptying into the Connecticut. The 2006 movie, Live Free or Die, was filmed in Claremont.
