I think the town of Franklin is horrid, although there is a small movement to improve it, it is a drug haven & had a huge meth lab explosion & a urder within 1/2 a block of eachother. I have to drive through Franklin to go shopping in Tilton, but I don't stop.

Default Exeter's pretty, but...

Yup, all liberal morons from Mass here. And the property taxes in Exeter are beyond belief, among the highest in the nation.

And property taxes don't even cover trash services. We pay $2.50 per small bag of rubbish, and if it doesn't fit in the bag you wait for the twice a year when you can put a $5 sticker on it and they'll pick it up (for disposing of something like a mop). Because of this "Pay per Throw" idiocy, the woods are full of trash dumped by those who couldn't or wouldn't jump through all the necessary hoops thought up by ex-Mass elected officials.

And forget going to a "Town Meeting" to voice your opinion, they don't publicize when they're having them.

If the real estate market hadn't crashed, I'd have moved long ago. I only came here to take care of my Dad in his last year of life, and now I'm running through my life savings paying $12,000 a year in property taxes on the same value house that cost me $2,000 a year in Florida.

Don't make the same mistake I made.

There are many small minded people in NH however this question is purely a matter of personal preference, the type of person you are(or think you are),and the type of lifestyle you like.There are no "bad" parts of NH but it is becoming more pretentious in certain areas(Seacoast) and Manchester's quality of life has not seemed to have improved and Nashua is not any better.Stay away from MA border towns in general.Keene seems like a decent place if you have the means to find work there. Sorry to see the state is being ruined by garbage politics but apparently that's what the people wanted?.

I moved to Nashua in April of "97 from the Bahamas.

I lived in Baltimore for the first 27 years of my life. It has turned into a cess pool of crime & drugs now. There are police monitor cameras practically on every telephone pole.

I left for college in South Florida. After Graduation, I got the job in the Bahamas.

I am currently looking to build a home in Greenville, NH. Hopefully I will be able to move in by the end of the year.

The town is small, about 3,000 people. Quiet from what I saw upon visiting a few weeks ago. It take me 15 minutes to get to work from Nashua. From Greenville it would be about 30 minutes on main roads. So the winter commute should not be a problem as those roads would be the ones that are plowed first.

if you're looking to build in Greenville... you must be looking on the fringes, since most of the town is packed in tight! Try to avoid around Greenville Estates (trailer park). Towards Wilton is nice. No telling when High St will be open again from last spring's mudslide.

The lot is located on Old Wilton Road just north of Main street. The Builder has 5 one acre lots available with town water and sewer.

Well, I'm trying to move to NH from VA, so hopefully I can cancel some of that out.
