Jefferson is a town in Coos County, New Hampshire, United States.
It is home to parts of the White Mountain National Forest in the south and northeast and to two theme parks: Santa's Village and Six Gun City. There are also several private campgrounds, motels and inns.
First granted in 1765 by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth, the location was so deep in unexplored territory that few took up their claims. One who did was Colonel Joseph Whipple, who cut trails through the forests to build a "manor" house. He named the town "Dartmouth" after William Legge, 2nd Earl of Dartmouth, the patron of Dartmouth College. Brother to William Whipple, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, Colonel Whipple renamed the town "Jefferson" four years prior to Thomas Jefferson's election as president. The legislature would grant the town a new charter as "Jefferson" in 1796.
According to the US census, the town has a total area of 50.4 square miles, of which 50.2 sq mi is land and 0.2 sq mi is water, comprising 0.46% of the town.
As of the 2010 census, there were 1,107 people residing in the town, and according to the 2000 census there were 407 households, and 295 families residing in the town. The population density was 20.1 people per square mile. There were 582 housing units at an average density of 11.6 per square mile.
