Conway NH - The Gateway to the White Mountains of NH and W Maine
Conway NH is a small town that has become quite a hub of activity for the north country of NH and Western Maine. Conway is the center piece of the towns that make up The Mount Washington Valley. The valley itself is actually the Saco River valley. The river winds its way down from the height of land at Saco Lake, in Crawford Notch, through the intervale below, to the mountainous farmlands, on its way to the Atlantic Ocean in Biddeford Maine. Those farmlands were settled long ago and became the Town of Conway.
The Town of Conway is made of a patchwork of village districts based on a mix of fire department coverage areas, and zip codes. The common names of the "districts" are Conway Village ( 03818 ), Center Conway, East Conway ( both 03813 ) and North Conway ( 03860 ). A less commonly known district, today, is the Kearsarge Lighting District, whose boundaries roughly lie along the line of Keasarge Road, between North Conway Village and Cranmore Mountain Resort. This is a uniquely defined and governed area of town, with it's own overlay of district restrictions. Intervale ( 03845 ) is also a part of North Conway AND Bartlett NH. The Intervale NH Post Office is about a quarter mile into North Conway, while the physical boundaries tend to be from the train tracks at the Bartlett town line north toward Glen NH (a district in Bartlett). There you have it. Conway is a town of about 7500 full time residents with 6 "political" districts and 4 zip codes, 1 police department and 4 independent fire departments. The schools are well run, with 3 elementary schools, a regional middle school and a regional high school and technical school. Granite State College and White Mountains Community College have campus space in town. Plymouth State University and SNHU, as well as a number of Maine colleges, are within an hour and a half drive of Conway.
