Once a part of Kittery known as the Upper Parish, Eliot became independent in 1810. The town meanders along the shores of the Piscataqua River opposite the cities of Portsmouth and Dover, NH. Take River Road for scenic views across Great Bay. On the southern end there’s an active public boat launch with a family picnic area and pavilion.

The 747-ton Elizabeth Hamilton and The Nightingale clipper ship were launched from Eliot’s shores. This town is the international home of the Baha’i faith. Primarily a farming community in its earlier years, Eliot was also known for its brick-making industry.

Buildings of historical interest include the William Fogg Library, the William Fogg House, the Dr. Willis Homestead (1725) and the 1768 Libby Home, a former roadside tavern.

Eliot celebrates with its annual “Festival Days” the last Friday and Saturday of every September. Activities include a 5k race, a parade and fireworks.
