Scotland Historically And Today

Named by its first settler, a Scotsman named Isaac Magoon, Scotland is a tiny town, covering just 19 square miles. Magoon purchased several hundred acres of the southeast section of Windham in 1700. Scotland separated from Windham in 1732 when a society formed and built a church. It was incorporated in 1857. Little has changed in the quaint agricultural community since 1781 when French General Rochambeau's army camped here for a night. It's still largely a farming based economy, and governs itself by town meeting, much the same as in the olden days. Samuel Huntington, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and state governor, was born here. Pristine scenery features small family houses and farms on rolling hills. The main occupations of the community remain dairy and poultry farming. Despite the small size of the town, Scotland operates its very own public elementary school, library and community center. Students attending middle and high school travel to Regional School District 11's Parish Hill High in Chaplin. Very small class sizes are typical of Scotland's school system.
