Hello! đź‘‹Welcome to ruralnh.org.

When I moved to New Hamsphire from the Washington, D.C. metro area, it was the first time I had lived in a rural town.

At first, I experienced a bit of culture shock. Where were the familiar signs of everyday life: 7-11s, Burger Kings, or other brightly colored franchises that dotted main intersections and served as familiar waypoints?

Small towns make up for their lack of people by having everyone be more interesting.

I soon grew to love the vacation-paced life and the brilliant blue skies framed by miles of pine trees.

After the move I was surprised by the number of friends and acquaintances that were intensely curious about life in New Hampshire.

This blog is for all those who are curious or contemplating a move to live in New Hampshire’s farmlands or forests.

I hope you find it to be an unvarnished account and of practical use.

Thank you for visiting!
