Welcome to Shelburne!

Nestled on the banks of the Androscoggin River, on the northern end of the Mount Washington Valley, sits the quiet, rural town of Shelburne, New Hampshire.

Founded in 1769, the town was named for William Petty Fitzmaurice, Earl of Shelburne, and is now home to approximately 353 residents. 

Shelburne is located on the scenic byway known as the Presidential Range Trail. We belong to the GRS Cooperative, along with Gorham and Randolph, and we are also part of SAU #20. Information in regards to our schools can be found here.

If you need to register a car, motorcycle, trailer, or a dog (cash or check only), the Town Clerk's hours are as follows:


Mondays - 12 PM to 6 PM

Tuesdays - 12 PM to 6 PM

Wednesdays - 10 AM to 2 PM

For any other business, the Town Office is open Monday through Thursday from 11 AM to 6 PM

and Fridays by appointment.

Events & Announcements:
Dog Licenses

Reminder that it is New Hampshire law to register your dog(s) every year by April 30th for a small fee ($2 - $9 per dog). These tags are also helpful in identifying your pup if they get away from you and your household for whatever reason, hopefully assisting in getting them back home - safe and sound. A current rabies certificate is required for registration.

Shelburne Public Library

The Shelburne Public Library has several programs for both children and adults. Details of these programs can be found in the calendar below. Please contact Melanie Devoid for more information.
