Twin Mountain Fish & Wildlife Hatchery


 

RFD 1

Whitefield, NH 03598

Ph: 603-846-5429



The Twin Mountain Hatchery dates back to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal of the 1930s.



After members of the Whitefield Fish and Game Club read about the creation of a hatchery in Chester County, Pennsylvania, they presented the idea (for a similar project in Twin Mountain) to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. As a result, the Twin Mountain Hatchery was initiated as a Works Progress Administration project in 1934.



The facility was built on this site because the springs forming Carroll Stream, which flows through the hatchery grounds, provide a continuous source of oxygen-rich water. Exhibits and programs for children and adults to learn more about watersheds and their importance to wildlife. A 27-foot fish tank. Hatchery tours. Open late May to mid-October. School programs by arrangement.
