The population was 2,788 at the 2010 census. Bartlett includes the unincorporated communities of Glen, Kearsarge and Intervale. It is set in the White Mountains, surrounded by the White Mountain National Forest. It is home to the Attitash ski resort. Settled after 1769 and incorporated in 1790, the town is named for Dr. Josiah Bartlett, the first chief executive to bear the name governor, a representative to the Continental Congress, and one of New Hampshire's three signers of the Declaration of Independence, placing his name directly under that of John Hancock. Dr. Bartlett founded the New Hampshire Medical Society in 1791. Bartlett became a railroad town in 1875 when the Maine Central Railroad's Mountain Division was built. In 1954, Story Land, a theme park designed for young children, opened in Glen. Attitash ski area opened in the 1960s." ============= Interesting relic of the early town voting custom in NH.
