Local Reviews

Neighborhood was originally established in early 1900's. Homes built since vary from the 1910' to the 1970's. Very convenient to downtown, restaurants, airport and other areas of interest.

this is a typical small new england town. there are lots of local businesses nearby so shopping is very easy.

I like how if I needed help someone would be close by. I'm close to some of my favorite restaurants and i'm down the street from a park and some walking paths

its a quiet neighborhood, we all can talk to one another and hold good conversations, there are some kids in the area that keep you entertained

I like how close I am to the bars, there are almost all of my towns bars on a short walk away. I like being able to walk places.

i love the family friendly feel, the feeling like you can fit into any category and be accepted. people smile and say hello. it's just a nice calm area

About

Keene, NH

Overview of Keene

With its historic homes and collegiate atmosphere, Keene is one of the most charming small town communities in New England. With a downtown square that was designated as one of the Top 10 Great Public Spaces in 2009 by the American Planning Association and the city's high quality of life, it makes sense that so many New Hampshire residents are finding picturesque Keene apartments for rent. Named "The Elm City," the 2010 population was more than 23,400, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Living in Keene, NH

Although Keene is now part of New Hampshire, it was originally part of a land grant from the state of Massachusetts. In 1741, New Hampshire separated from Massachusetts and the area in the southern part of the state was named after Sir Benjamin Keene, an English minister to Spain and a West Indies trader. After the Revolutionary War, the city began to grow and eventually became a manufacturing hub. Keene eventually incorporated in 1874, and after the Great Depression, New England manufacturing eventually declined and the city began to develop into the center for insurance, education and tourism it is today.

Keene Attractions and Special Events

Although the city is known by tourists as a wonderful display of Victorian architecture, the locals take great pride in their community festivals. The most popular by far is the autumnal Pumpkin Festival. With a fall-themed parade, pumpkin-lined streets that host a one-mile race, pumpkin-inspired desserts and a spectacular jack-o-lantern tower in the Central Square, this is a favorite community event for adults and children alike.
