It has a couple of islands and many coves hiding some great fishing spots. The lake covers 341 acres with a maximum depth of 25 feet.

only form of public access to Swains Lake. There is a small area at

protecting and improving the lake. Bar-

rington was incorporated in 1722. The town was made up

of two grants, the first containing all of Strafford and pres-

ent-day Barrington except for a parcel two miles wide called New Portsmouth, or the Two Mile Streak. This second grant

had been set aside to provide fuel and home sites for im-

ported workers at the Lamprey River Iron Works, chartered in 1719 by the Massachusetts General Court to encourage industrial development in the province.

Slow at first to be settled because of rocky soil, Barrington

by 1810 had 3,564 residents, then the state’s third larg-

est town, its primary industry the smelting of iron ore.

The Isinglass River, together with its tributaries, provided wa-

ter power for grist, fulling and saw mills. In 1820, Strafford was set

off from Barrington, reducing its land area by about half, because of lengthy travel required to attend town meetings.

Swains lake is within an hour

from Concord, Portsmouth, the seacoast and the White

Mountains. It is also around 90 minutes to Boston.

ries for generations to enjoy. Make it The place to be for your lake home.
