New Hampden was settled around 1858 and was the site of a flint quarry that Native Americans used to produce arrowheads. It was considered to be an area of high importance and regarded as a neutral ground by native tribes.
The town features a historic Rexrode grist mill that was in operation from 1816 to 1944, an old general store that was open into the 1980s, a warehouse, and a scattering of residences.
