The Official "Sunapee Sestercentennial "  Logo
Designed by Michael McLaughlin

We hope that many of our long relocated family, friends, neighbors and classmates will join us for the celebration.  If you need help finding a place to stay, we have compiled a list of area motels, hotels, lodges and bed & breakfasts to help you find the right room for you.  Download the form by clicking here.

Question- Why does  the town seal shows the incorporation date of 1781 which means 250 years from incorporation is 2031.  What did happen in 1768?
Answer- In short, here it is, from The Story of Sunapee, by John Bartlett:

- On November 9, 1768, The New Royal Governor, John Wentworth,  by authority of King George III, signed his name to a deed of 23,040 acres of undeveloped land, and recorded the same as the Charter of Saville. 

- In 1781 Saville became incorporated as a township under the new name of Wendell.

- In 1850, the State Legislature changed the name from Wendell to Sunapee.

Here is our Town Seal, designed for our Bicentennial in 1968.-

Now on-line, the Sunapee Sestercentennial Facebook Page, please like and keep current on the planning at "Sunapee Celebrates it's 250th Birthday"

For the designers and seamstresses, we are talking about putting together a community quilt depicting scenes of Sunapee, more news about that as soon as the plan is put together.  

Please contact any member of the Committee if you want to participate or have suggestions for events for the celebration in 2018!
