History

Waterville Valley had long been a vacation destination since the early 1800’s. Waterville was incorporated in 1829 and later changed the name to Waterville Valley in 1966. Development of the valley started to boom with winter recreation and a new ski area at Mt. Tecumseh in the late 1960’s. February 23, 1967 would be a day that changed public safety for Waterville Valley. The Waterville Inn, was the most popular and historical lodging in the valley since the 1800’s. During that evening in February, a fire started in the kitchen and workers had thought they had put it out. The fire soon spread from within the walls. Several fire departments were called from around the county to respond. The responding departments were slowed by one of the largest snow storms of the year. The Inn was a total loss. March 14, 1967 -Stuart Currier was appointed as the first Police Chief. March 1968 - The Waterville Company agrees to add a bay to the service station on Tripoli Road to house a fire truck. March, 1969 - The town approves an article to purchase its’ own fire truck for $30,000. May, 1970 Town approves $57,000 to build a new fire station. (Our current location)
