Welcome sign at Hosmer Field during Valentines Day snowstorm







On February 21st the Town of Rumford celebrated its 200th birthday. There will be many events celebrating the event all year long. The Town of Rumford was originally called New Pennacook. New Pennacook Township was incorporated as Rumford on Feb. 21, 1800. (Pennacook Valley Festival is an annual event.)

Johnathan Keyes of Massachusetts was the first settler. The town got its name from Sir Benjamin Thompson (Count Rumford).

Flags of all fifty states placed on the bridge in June as part of bicentennial celebration
Just for the record, the day after I built this page I was watching Home Time on The Learning Channel and Bob Vila's project for the show was building a Count Rumford Fireplace. Small world, huh?

March 18th, 2000 . Maine Congressman John Baldacci presented Rumford Selectmen with a United States flag that was flown over the Nation's Capitol in Washington D.C. on February 21st to commemorate Rumford's 200th birthday.
