Manchester, New Hampshire Community Video Tour
- Manchester is the largest city in New Hampshire. The city of almost 110,000 residents is divided by The Merrimack River and is the financial, political and cultural center for the state. In 2009 CNNMoney.com rated Manchester 13th in a list of the 100 best cities to live and launch a business in the United States.
One of the architectural highlights of Manchester are its historic red brick mills, many of which have been renovated for other uses. The Amoskeag Manufacturing Company was a textile manufacturer which founded Manchester, New Hampshire. From modest beginnings in near wilderness, it grew throughout the 19th century into the largest cotton textile plant in the world. At its peak, Amoskeag was unrivaled both for the quality and quantity of its products. But with great size came an inability to adapt. In the early 20th century, the business failed in changing economic and social conditions. Segway, the University of New Hampshire and other software and high tech companies occupy the restored buildings. Restaurants and loft apartments are also prominent. Manchester's 19th century affluence left behind some of the finest Victorian commercial, municipal and residential architecture in the state of New Hampshire.
Manchester's many cultural landmarks include the historic Palace Theatre, the Currier Museum of Art, the New Hampshire Institute of Art, the Franco-American Center, the Manchester Historic Association, Millyard Museum, the Massabesic Audubon Center, the Amoskeag Fishways Learning Center, and the SEE Science Center. The Verizon Wireless Arena, opened in 2001, hosts a variety of sporting and entertainment events, including hockey and football games, rock concerts and fairs. The New Hampshire Fisher Cats and the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium are located right downtown.
Housing in Manchester ranges from Historic North End Mansions to chic condominiums to funky loft apartments, and everything in between.
Thousands of children and adults have enjoyed skiing and snowboarding at the McIntyre Ski for decades.
Manchester is located between Nashua and Concord and is at the crossroads of all the major highways in New Hampshire. The Manchester•Boston Regional Airport (MHT) is one of the fastest growing airports in the country and services consumers in four states.
Currier Museum of Art
Great art is just the beginning at the Currier, where you can enjoy dynamic programs along with great works by artists like Picasso, Monet, OKeeffe, and Warhol in a beautifully expanded museum with dramatic Winter Garden café & new shop.

Manchester New Hampshire (NH) Real Estate Tour
Tour Manchester, NH neighborhoods, condominium developments, subdivisions, schools, landmarks, recreational areas, and town offices.
Manchester, New Hampshire is the largest city in the state and one of the fastest-growing cities in New England. The financial, cultural and political hub of New Hampshire, Manchester is located between Concord and Nashua.
Originally inhabited by the Penacook Indians, who called the area Amoskeag - meaning good fish place - Manchester was granted by Massachusetts Governor Benning Wentworth in 1751 as Derryfield. In 1807, inventor Samuel Blodget opened a canal and lock system to allow passage around the Amoskeag Falls for shipping vessels. Blodget here envisioned a major industrial city to rival Manchester, England, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. At Blodget's suggestion, Derryfield was renamed Manchester in 1810, the same year that the new cotton spinning mill on the western bank of the Merrimack was incorporated as the Amoskeag Cotton & Woolen Manufacturing Company.
Incorporated as a city in 1846, Manchester soon became home to the largest cotton mill in the world -- Mill No. 11, spanning 900 feet (270 m) long by 103 feet (31 m) wide, and containing 4000 looms. Other products of Manchester's mills included shoes, cigars and paper. The Amoskeag foundry made rifles, sewing machines, textile machinery, fire engines, and locomotives in a division called the Amoskeag Locomotive Works (later, the Manchester Locomotive Works). The rapid growth of the mills demanded a large influx of workers, which precipitated a flood of new immigrants, particularly French Canadians. Many current residents are directly descendended from Manchester's early mill workers. The Amoskeag Manufacturing Company went out of business in 1935, although its red brick mills have been renovated for other uses. Indeed, the mill town's 19th century affluence left behind some of the finest Victorian commercial, municipal and residential architecture in the state of New Hampshire.
The City of Manchester prides itself on its many historical buildings and churches. The cityscape is an uncanny mix of historical architecture and new developments. The old mill buildings along the Amoskeag River now house an assortment of software and high-tech firms.
Manchester's many cultural landmarks include the historic Palace Theatre, the Currier Museum of Art, the New Hampshire Institute of Art, the Franco-American Center, the Manchester Historic Association Millyard Museum, the Massabesic Audubon Center, the Amoskeag Fishways Learning and Visitors Center, the Lawrence L. Lee Scouting Museum and Max I. Silber Library, and the SEE Science Center. The Verizon Wireless Arena, opened in 2001, hosts a variety of sporting and entertainment events, including hockey and football games, rock concerts and fairs.
The Manchester school system has a dedicated staff and many programs that allow for an effective and fair education throughout the city. Manchester is also host to many colleges, including UNH Manchester, Southern New Hampshire University, and Hesser College. For other town tours visit . For towns in NH visit .

Currier Museum Art Center: A Ghost Story
Currier Museum Art Center Program Manager Linn Krikorian tells a creepy tale about the Art Center back when classes were held in the Kennard House. Before the Kennard House was moved down the block to accommodate the museum's expansion in 2008, there were many reports of ghostly sounds coming from the old house, which dates back to the 1860's and was owned by a prominent family, John and Hannah Kennard. The Kennard House, which was designed in the Second Empire residential style, a form of ornate French architecture, features a mansard roof, dormers with arched hoods and a dominant facade tower. Not many examples of this style survive today. In this story, Linn relates an encounter with the Kennard House ghost, and later with the Grim Reaper that left her rattled!

Bedford New Hampshire (NH) Real Estate Tour
-- Tour Bedford, NH neighborhoods, condominium developments, subdivisions, schools, landmarks, recreational areas, and town offices.
Bedford, New Hampshire, formerly a quiet farming town, has evolved into an affluent bedroom community for those commuting to nearby Manchester and other cities; notably, Nashua, Boston and even Concord. With an 80/20 residential-to-business ratio, Bedford's real estate profile doesn't automatically evoke a booming business town. However, commerce in Bedford is growing. Popular establishments include the Bedford Village Inn and Restaurant, one of the top Bed and Breakfasts in New Hampshire, and C.R. Sparks, one of the area's finest restaurants.
Incorporated in 1750, Bedford was named for Lord John Russell, 4th Duke of Bedford, a close friend to colonial Governor John Wentworth. While it remained a quiet rural town for most of the next two centuries, Bedford enjoyed a population boom after World War II, when the expansion of highways and other transportation routes brought a massive influx of new residents throughout southern New Hampshire.
Conveniently located near Boston, the seacoast, the White Mountains and the Lakes Region, Bedford offers excellent schools, a thriving local business climate, and bountiful opportunities for recreation, sightseeing and leisure. Business activity in Bedford is focused along Route 3, otherwise known as the performance zone. Premium office parks and shopping centers such as the Bedford Mall along with Macy's department store, the Wayfarer Inn and the Manchester Country Club line this road, which runs south from Manchester into Merrimack and Nashua. Bedford's other commercial clusters are along Route 101, which extends westward.
With recent expansions to its first-rate school system now taking effect, Bedford has turned its focus toward town recreational facilities, including a 70-acre park with several ball fields, ski trails, fishing and ice skating. The scenic town center offers an array of lovingly preserved historic buildings, including Schoolhouse #7, the Bedford Presbyterian Church, and the town hall. The Kendall Shop Museum and Carriage House offers a variety of exhibits highlighting the community's illustrious past. Other attractions near Bedford include Manchester's Palace Theatre, the Verizon Wireless Arena, the Currier Museum of Art, Pat's Peak Ski Area, the Manchester Historic Association Millyard Museum, Christa McAuliffe Planetarium and the SEE Science Center.
