Rumney is situated at the southern edge of the White Mountain National Forest, in Grafton County, New Hampshire. The town was initially granted by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth in 1761. It was settled in 1765, but some of the grantees failed to meet the requirements of the charter, so it was re-granted to another group of settlers in 1767. Villages within the town of Rumney include Rumney Village, its chief settlement, as well as Rumney Depot, West Rumney, Stinson Lake, and Quincy. Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, resided in Rumney between the years of 1860 and 1862. The Polar Caves, known for their rock formations, is situated along the easter border of the town, while Rumney Rocks are between Rumney Village and West Rumney.
