The Ideal Home for RiverWoods’ Newest Community
Ideally situated on the beautiful Oyster River, Durham has been a popular and active community since the early days of the New Hampshire colony. In 1893, the first college was established in Durham, and, now the home of The University of New Hampshire (UNH), it has thrived as an academic hub ever since.
Renowned for its natural beauty as well, Durham is home to numerous town-owned conservation lands, including farms, forests and wildlife sanctuaries. The landmark Wagon Hill Farm is a 139-acre property filled with trails and scenic views. The Oyster River Forest, or Sprucewood Forest, is 171-acre town-owned land that includes opportunities for birding, fishing, hiking, and cross-country skiing.
A lively university town, Durham is rich in cultural, athletic, artistic and academic opportunities. UNH’s Wildcats are national contenders with more than 20 Division 1 sports teams, and the campus is home to over 30 student-run arts organizations.
This vibrant historic New England community makes it an ideal home for the RiverWoods way of life.
