Lempster Windmills

Lempster, established in 1767, is located in southern Sullivan County and has several beautiful rivers, including Giles Brook, Cold River, and Ashuelot River, to enjoy. In 2008, New Hampshire opened its first wind farm, the Lempster Mountain Wind Power Project. The other-worldly-looking turbines are located on Bean Mountain and provide 24 megawatts of power. For outdoor recreation, take the Silver Mountain Trail for a great view from the top of Silver Mountain, or spend the afternoon canoeing or kayaking on Long Pond.
