Nashua's neighborhoods offer a great diversity in compactness, affordability, open space, housing-type, ethnicity, culture, history, architecture, and street character. In each neighborhood there will be a fine school and well-maintained park for the benefit and health of our youth. Whatever your lifestyle or family preference, you will discover the "right" neighborhood in Nashua.
Nashua is the result of a well-planned, nicely compact, early 19th century New England manufacturing village, once surrounded by 30 square miles of woodland, meadows, and farmland until recent decades. Today, Nashua offers the wonderful combination of a grand historic downtown district, ringed with traditional pedestrian-oriented urban neighborhoods, and finally generating outward to more rural and contemporary suburban neighborhoods.
