For the Young Family
“I was shocked,” says New Boston Realtor Heidi Palmer, who recently took stock of the inventory of properties in town. “We still have a couple of houses at $195,000. They’re really adorable – a three-bedroom cape in move-in condition. We have a couple in the mid-$200,000 range. There’s a great farmhouse with acreage, enough room for horses, for $259,000.
Just south of Goffstown on Route 13 and within a 30-minute drive of either Manchester or Concord, New Boston offers a wholesome rural, small-town life where folks come together for celebrations like an old-fashioned Fourth of July, with a barn dance on the night preceding the parade and a day of games and festivities for the whole family.
Downtown is an old-fashioned village, with Dodge’s General Store serving the classic role. Across the street is the antique store, the town library and The New Boston Community Church, where the Rev. Robert “Woody” Woodland leads worship each Sunday in friendly, down home non-denominational fashion.
