Freedom is a town located in Carroll County, New Hampshire, United States. The 2000 Census showed a population of 1,303. As of 2005, the population was estimated by the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning at 1,431. The town's eastern boundary runs along the Maine state border. Ossipee Lake, with a resort and camps, is in the southwest of the town.
The town was once a part of Effingham called "North Effingham." Following an influx of new settlers from Maine, there was a conflict of culture and religion between them and people from the New Hampshire seacoast area who already populated Effingham. As a result, North Effingham separated into a town of its own. The community, incorporated in 1831, was appropriately named "Freedom."
The town has been the setting for a couple of stories, including the children's fantasy book called The Enormous Egg, first published in 1956 but reissued years later (ISBN 0-316-11920-2). Freedom was also the setting for a 2001 broadcast of This American Life, entitled The House at Loon Lake. That episode depicted an abandoned house explored by young boys, in town for summer camp at Loon Lake.
