The Barnstormers was founded in 1931 by Francis and Alice Cleveland and Ed Goodnow. Francis, the youngest child of President Grover Cleveland, was pursuing a career on Broadway, when The Barnstormers made its debut in Tamworth. The troupe got its name from precisely what they did: after opening Monday night in Tamworth, they’d hit the road and tour rural towns, “barnstorming” their way throughout Northern New England.
Today, The Barnstormers makes its home in the center of the bustling town of Tamworth. Across the street and just steps away are the Tamworth Distilling, the Tamworth History Center, and the Remick Farm Museum.
