The self-proclaimed Gate City Nashua lies just north of the Massachusetts border and follows the western bank of the Merrimack River. New Hampshire's second-largest city has twice been named Money' magazine's Best Place to Live in America, and is the only city in the country ever to win this honor twice. A low crime rate also recently found Nashua ranked as the 27th safest city in the entire United States. Low unemployment coupled with excellent schools and up-to-date healthcare facilities were all reasons cited for this ranking in 1987 and 1997. These and many other great features make this city of 83,000 an excellent community in which to live and work.
The village of Nashua was an early textile center. By 1836, Nashua Corporation had built three cotton mills and was producing 9.3 million yards of cotton cloth annually on 710 looms. The city of Nashua was chartered in 1852, and before the Civil War, railroad lines crossed the city with 56 trains entering and departing daily. After World War 11, the textile mills moved south and the city gradually developed a diversified industry, particularly high technology and retail.
Since a commercial development boom in the 1980's, the city has served as a shopping mecca with several malls and plazas for those fleeing Massachusetts sales taxes. Not to be outdone, downtown Nashua hosts several seasonal festivals and parties, a myriad of activities from evening concerts at Greeley Park to parades and shows all over the city. Ethnic restaurants and posh specialty gift shops have made the downtown area a popular destination year-round, in addition to an extensive retail industry; the city also hosts several major high-tech companies such as Compaq Computer Corporation, Oracle, and Sanders, a Lockheed-Martin Company.
Recreation is not overlooked in this small city, and there are ample outlets for many different activities. Mine Falls Park, a 300-acre area in the geographic center of the city, offers trails for hiking, running, biking, and cross-country skiing. Athletic fields are also available for soccer and baseball. Greeley Park, a 126-acre tract between Concord and Manchester Streets, offers a playground, tennis courts, an outdoor band shell for summer concerts, and picnic facilities.
The city is also home to one of two New Hampshire professional baseball teams, the Nashua Pride. In 1998, the independent Atlantic League of Professional Baseball brought the unaffiliated Nashua Pride to Holman Stadium. Future Brooklyn Dodger stars Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe played at Holman in 1946 on the first integrated baseball team in the U.S. Holman Stadium is also host for numerous high school and youth sports events, as well as for the annual July 4 fireworks display, always among the area's largest.
History is alive in Nashua with an active historical society and several buildings which have been named to the National Register of Historic Places. The Hunt Memorial Building, once the city library is a brick Gothic structure and the only New Hampshire example of the work of architect Ralph Adams Cram.
The Nashua Public Library hosts community activities including lectures, club meetings, free movies, and concerts. With New Hampshire's second-largest collection of materials, the library circulates more items than any other library north of Boston.
