Londonderry NH offers a quiet rural lifestyle firmly rooted in our agricultural past.
Londonderry has tennis courts, several playgrounds, athletic fields and sports teams for all ages. There are 27 public and private golf courses in the area. The town also has an extensive conservation area with hiking trails.
Londonderry’s five orchards offer apple, berry, and pumpkin picking. They also host special events, such as picnics, apple blossom tours, and winter sports. Several orchards have farm stores that sell their wares and local items.
The state of NH had designated the roads connecting these orchards as a scenic highway, called The Apple Way. A brochure and map of The Apple Way can be obtained from the Londonderry Town Hall.
Londonderry is in an enviable position. About 12 miles north of the Massachusetts border, eight miles from the center of Manchester, and close to the Manchester Airport, the town provides a strategic location for businesses and commuters alike. Easy road and air access, combined with the largest area of undeveloped, industrially zoned land in southern New Hampshire has made Londonderry a magnet for industrial and commercial enterprises.
The continued expansion of the Manchester Airport on the Manchester/ Londonderry border has fueled Londonderry’s place as an economic and industrial center in the state. A significant portion of the nearly 1,000 acres surrounding the airport, designated a U.S. Foreign Trade Zone, lies within the town, making it the ideal site for companies involved with international trade.
In the face of continued commercial growth, Londonderry has initiated a program to preserve its rural quality of life. A key component of this plan is the state’s first ecological industrial park. Located near the airport, the park is designed to attract industries that are environmentally conscious and who want to minimize their impact on the environment.
Londonderry’s dedication in preserving its quality of life while encouraging an expanding business base has made it a particularly popular home for newcomers to the region. With a wide variety of housing options, including older Colonials and Victorians, as well as newer single family homes and condominiums and apartments, Londonderry is prepared for continued growth.
Londonderry has two museums in town: The Morrison House Historical Museum and the Children’s Metamorphosis Children’s Museum . And when you live in Londonderry, you are less than an hour from all the outdoor adventures that New Hampshire has to offer, plus Londonderry is only a few minutes from the city of Manchester and forty minutes from Boston. These cities’ cultural opportunities include fine dining, major symphonies, shopping, and world class museums.
Religion has been an important piece of Londonderry’s culture since the town was first incorporated in 1722. Today, churches of many different denominations dot the landscape all over Londonderry as families grow and learn more about their relationship to God.
In the midst of all this activity, Londonderry offers a quiet rural lifestyle firmly rooted in our agricultural past. Folks young and old take part in all kinds of clubs and organizations throughout the year as there truly is something for everyone.
This rural lifestyle is supported with excellent town services, including one of the better school systems in the state, a brand new 45,000 volume library, and a highly professional fire and police department that have made Londonderry one of the safest town’s in New Hampshire. New Hampshire itself has the second lowest crime rate in the United States.
