Effective Tuesday, March 31, 2020 the Town of Caroll Transfer Station will be suspending its reycling process.  This will help reduce the possible exposure of COVID-19 to our employees.  There are also several recycling centers that have closed at this time, leaving few locations to bring recycled materials to.  Upon arrival to the transfer station, please drive down to the compactor.  We ask that you respect your neighbors, be safe and maintain a six foot distance from other people.  As of this date also, any items disposed of such as appliances, tires, construction debris, etc. that have a cost to dispose of will be billed to you.  The transfer station is not accepting any payments at this time.  Payments can be mailed to the Town of Carroll, PO Box 146, Twin Mountain, NH 03595.   Thank you for your patience and cooperation in the matter.

 

 On March 23, 2020, Governor Sununu issued Emergency Order #12 which modified the requirements of RSA 91-A, III(c) requiring that each part of a meeting of a public body be audible or otherwise discernible to the public “at the location specified in the meeting notice as the location of the meeting.” Specifically, Governor Sununu waived the “location” requirement. In other words, there is no longer a need for the public body to provide a physical location where the public may come and listen to the meeting.  As such there will be a meeting of the Board of Selectmen on Monday, April 6 at 6 p.m.   This will be held by telephone only.  The public may listen to the meeting by calling 978-990-5000 and use an access code of 583338.    If there is a problem accessing the phone conference, please call the Selectmen's office at 846-5754.

Carroll Residents,
In light of the Governor’s announcement regarding the State of Emergency, we feel the need to be responsible and safe, and want to keep our residents informed.  The Town’s assessors from Commerford,Nieder Perkins will be continuing their data verification procedures for the assessing work that needs to be completed this year.  They will however, not be performing interior inspections at this time, but will knock on your door to let you know they are there.  They will also leave a door tag.  If you are home and not feeling well please do not open the door to greet them, but rather acknowledge their presence through a door or window.  However, if you are able to review your interior information with the assessor at the door please feel free, otherwise at some point in the future you will receive a letter, or phone call in some instances, to schedule and/or verify interior information.
The safety of the company’s staff and our residents is top priority so we appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

 History

Under Governor John Wentworth, a Charter was granted February 8, 1772 to Sir Thomas Wentworth and others for a tract of land called Bretton-Woods, derived from the estate of the Wentworth Family in England called Bretton Hall.

By June 1830, the population was 150 people but was unincorporated having no representation in the legislature.  The residents petitioned the legislature to become a Town named Haven (apparently to honor Alfred W. Haven, Justice of the Peace of Bretton Woods.)

As of May 1831, the legislature had not acted upon the petition of Bretton-Woods to incorporate as a town.  Some of the original petitioners changed their minds and wanted to withdraw the petition.  The legislature ignored the petition and passed an Act signed into law on June 22, 1832 incorporating the Town of Carroll.

Charles Carroll of Maryland was a distinguished American of wide reputation and one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.  Thus, the Town of Carroll was incorporated which included the villages of Crawford's, Bretton Woods, Fabyans and Twin Mountain.
