- Your Nashua, New Hampshire Realtor
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.
Education is a priority for Nashua residents, and the 12 elementary schools, three junior high schools, and the high school reflect this focus, preparing graduates to go on to fine colleges anywhere. Still, many choose to pursue higher education locally in of the areas several fine colleges and vocational schools.
Housing in Nashua is diverse, with a wide array of options from single-family homes to rentals and condominiums. The elegant North End has been Nashua's most affluent area for more than a century. Well-kept Victorian homes built around the turn of the century line the edge of Concord Street near Greeley Park. The older textile mills along the Nashua River have been renovated into condominiums, popular for their proximity to downtown's Main Street.

Deliver-Drive-Load in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Hampshire
There is a lot going on today!
We didn't make our delivery last night as planned, but I'm glad we didn't.
We parked near our delivery location last night and we'll make the delivery this morning.
The place was crazy packed with trailers double and triple-parked; I would not have wanted to do this in the dark last night!
After making delivery, we'll drive the 136 miles across Connecticut and Massachusetts to Merrimack, New Hampshire to pick up a very heavy load of beer to take back to Ohio.
It took three attempts to scale out the load before we got all the axle weights legal.
Now we're on our way to Ohio.

is the state capital of New Hampshire, a city of nearly 40,000 and a gateway to New Hampshire's White Mountain and Lakes Regions. The land which Concord now occupies along the banks of the Merrimack River was settled thousands of years ago by Abenaki Native Americans called the Penacook.
The broad sweeps of the river valley, fertile soil for farming, and easy transportation on the Merrimack made the site of Concord equally inviting to English-speaking colonists in the eighteenth century. Settled by immigrants from Massachusetts in 1725, the community grew in prominence during the colonial era. Some of Concord's earliest houses remain today at the north end of Main Street.
In the years following the American Revolution, the city's central location made it a logical choice for the state capital, and in 1808 Concord was named the official seat of state government. Today the 1819 State House is the oldest state capitol in which the legislative branches meet in their original chambers.
Concord's location also made it a hub for inland trade and commerce. One of the city's best-known industries was carriage manufacturing, and here world famous Concord coaches were built throughout the nineteenth century. Many surviving coaches remain on display at the Museum of New Hampshire History.
Furniture making and granite quarrying were also major local industries. The granite for the library of Congress in Washington, D.C. came from nearby Rattlesnake Hill, which to this day remains a major granite quarry. Because of Concord's central location, it became the northern hub of the railroad industry. For more than a century, scores of trains, headed in every direction, passed through the city daily.
Concord was also the home of the nation's fourteenth President, Franklin Pierce, and the Pierce Manse at the north end of Main Street is open to the public. A few miles northeast of Concord in Canterbury, members of an unusual and fascinating religious order settled in the 1790s. Today Canterbury Shaker Village is the premier museum of Shaker life. Concord was also the home of teacher-astronaut Christa McAuliffe. She is memorialized at the Christa McAuliffe Planetarium, the nation's most technologically sophisticated planetarium. Other sites of interest include the New Hampshire State House, which dates from 1818; the Eagle Hotel, which hosted several presidents during the 19th century; and the Walker-Woodman House (built ca. 1735), Concord's oldest free-standing house.
Centrally located, the city of Concord offers easy access to the scenic White Mountains, Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee and Lakes Regions, New Hampshire's gorgeous Atlantic Ocean coast, and the cultural and economic hub of Boston, Massachusetts. In addition to being the state capital, Concord is a center for health care in Northern New England and home to several major insurance companies today. Its neighborhoods and main street reflect almost 270 years of history. So please come and enjoy Concord's beautiful capitol, its historic downtown shopping area, parks and neighborhoods, as well as its magnificent setting on the bluffs of the Merrimack River. You'll be glad you came! For other town tours visit . For towns in NH visit . For NH relocation information go to .

Nashua, New Hampshire is located on the Massachusetts border on Interstate Route 3, and thusly is known as the Gate City. Since a commercial development boom in the 1980s, the city of Nashua has served as a shopping mecca for those seeking to avoid Massachusetts sales tax. Built around the now-departed textile industry, in recent decades Nashua has been swept up in southern New Hampshire's economic expansion as part of the Greater Boston region. Several major high-tech companies call Nashua home, such as Compaq (formerly Digital Equipment Corp.), Nashua Corp., and BAE Systems, formerly Sanders a Lockeed-Martin company. The city also plays host to New Hampshire's only professional baseball team, the Nashua Pride, which plays in the independent Atlantic League.
Nashua was first granted as part of a 200-square-mile tract of land in Massachusetts called Dunstable. After New Hampshire formally separated from Massachusetts in 1741, the state line was redraw, and the land that now comprises Nashua fell within New Hampshire's new border. Situated at the confluence of the Nashua with the Merrimack River, Nashua - still known as Dunstable until the 1830's - emerged as a major industrial city over the course of the 19th century. By 1836, the city's cotton mills produced 9.3 million yards of cotton annually; on December 31st of the same year, Dunstable was officially renamed Nashua for the river that provided so much of its water power.
While most Nashua's old mills ceased operations in the decades after World War I, the arrival of several high tech-firms in the region shortly after World War II drove an economic resurgence which continues to the present day. The arrival of the highways brought an influx of new residents and commuters as Nashua became an integral part of the Boston-area high-tech corridor. By the end of the 20th century, Nashua sat at the heart of one of the richest and most prosperous regions in the country. At the outset of the 21st century, Nashua and the Southern New Hampshire region look to enjoy continued economic and residential growth for the forseeable future.
Centrally located near the cities of Manchester, Concord, Boston and Worcester, Nashua offers easy access to the scenic Lakes Region, the snowy peaks of the White Mountains, New Hampshire's beautiful Atlantic Ocean coast and the idyllic seaside villages of Cape Cod. The city Nashua boasts a newly revived downtown area, easy access to major highways, 10 outdoor skating rinks, four public swimming pools, and more than 25 parks and playgrounds. Money magazine has chosen the Nashua area as the best place to live twice: first in 1987 and most recently in 1997. For other town tours visit . For towns in NH visit .
