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.
Dr. Bartlett founded the New Hampshire Medical Society in 1791. Bartlett became a railroad town in 1875 when the Main Central Railroad's Mountain Division was built.
In 1954, Story Land, a theme park designed for young children, opened in Glen. The Attitash Mountain (ski) Resort opened in the 1960s.
Bartlett's views of the White Mountains have long made tourism a principal business. The town has one covered bridge. Attitash ski area is the second largest ski area in New Hampshire. Bartlett also is home to the Bear Notch Ski Touring area affording Nordic ski enthusiasts trails in the upper Saco River Valley. Bartlett is also an attraction for rail fans. The Conway Scenic Railroad, a heritage railway in nearby North Conway, operates a passenger train to the town daily for sightseeing in the spring, summer, and fall.
