Whitefield is a town in Coos County, New Hampshire, United States, in the White Mountains Region.

Situated on the northern edge of the White Mountains, Whitefield is home to the Mount Washington Regional Airport and the White Mountains Regional High School.

The last town to be granted under the English provincial government, Whitefield was chartered on July 4, 1774, exactly two years before adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Some believe it was named for George Whitefield, a famous English evangelist, and a friend of William Legge, 2nd Earl of Dartmouth, the patron of Dartmouth College. Others believe the name originated from earlier references to the snowy white fields one would see upon approach through any of the surrounding mountain passages. The chartered name was "Whitefields" but the "s" was dropped on December 1, 1804—the date of incorporation.

According to the US census, the town has a total area of 34.7 square miles, of which 34.2 sq mi is land and 0.4 sq mi, or 1.24%, is water. Whitefield is drained by Bog Brook and the Johns River, which runs through the center of town. Forest Lake and the Forest Lake State Park are located along Route 116, west of the town center.

As of the 2010 census, there were 2,306 people residing in the town, and according to the 2000 census there were 819 households, and 547 families residing in the town. The population density was 59.5 people per square mile. There were 1,158 housing units at an average density of 33.8 persons/sq mi.
