Containing the southernmost location in the state, the Old Boundary Pine, the town of Pelham in south-central New Hampshire retains the small-town charm that it’s had since its founding more than 270 years ago.n
With a population just shy of 13,500, Pelham quietly exudes small-town New England charm. With a high employment rate (median household income is more than $68,000 per year) and low poverty, residents of Pelham enjoy a high standard of living compared to the rest of the country.
Residents and visitors are hardly hurting for things to do, however. Nearby Canobie Lake Park (less than 6 miles away) offers a plethora of amusement options for every age, while nature lovers can enjoy miles of walking trails in a variety of nearby reserves, notably the Frederic Cutter Merriam, Costa, Gumpus Pond and Little Island Pond conservation areas. A large number of parks, including the Peabody Town Forest, offer yet more outdoor adventure options.
When people are done with a long day of outdoor fun, they can enjoy dining at one of a long list of fine area establishments, including Taqueria Garibaldi’s, the Pelham Diner, Café Trentuno and the Sarris Café.
