History

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.

The town has two covered bridges. Bartlett's spectacular views of the White Mountains has long made tourism a principal business. In 1954, Story Land, a theme park designed for young children, opened in Glen. Attitash ski area opened in the 1960s and claims (as does Bretton Woods Mountain Resort) to be the largest ski area in New Hampshire. The Conway Scenic Railroad, a heritage railway in nearby North Conway, operates a train to the town daily for sightseeing.
