Piermont is a town in Grafton County, New Hampshire,
United States. The population was 709 at the 2000 census. It is home to several summer camps.

History

Incorporated by Governor Benning Wentworth in 1764 and settled in 1768, the town takes its name from Italy's Piemonte. It had 426 residents in 1790, the year of the first census.

Aaron Lane, who grew up in Piermont, was the first permanent settler in the Mojave Desert area now known as Victorville, California. A biography of Lane sheds light on life in Piermont during the mid-1800s.
