Chester, New Hampshire

A small town with a population of only about 5000, Chester, New Hampshireoffers the perfect, tranquil, New England-style setting in which to raise a young family or retire far from the drudgery of city life.  Gurgling streams winding their way through the thickly wooded forests are found in abundance in this quiet, out-of-the-way town giving outdoorsman (and outdoorswomen) plenty of recreational activities to pursue.  Set in the southeastern part of the state, Chester is close to several cultural centers, yet still remains secluded enough to maintain its quaint New England charm.

Chester was so-named for Chester, England, the seat of which is in Cheshire County.  Incorporated in 1722, Chester was originally a 150+ square-mile tract of land settled by predominantly Scotch-Irish immigrants.  Because of its sprawling boundaries and cart path roads, trips into town for meetings or church services could turn into all day affairs.  Residents in outlying areas of Chester eventually petitioned to become their own towns, creating schools and churches for their particular part of the community.  In time these parishes broke off from Chester to form the communities of Auburn, Candia, Hooksett. Raymond and Derrryfield (now a part of Manchester).  No steam locomotives made their way into Chester, although the town was a stop on an important stagecoach route.  The lack of serious water power prevented Chester from becoming a manufacturing Mecca, like the nearby cities of Nashua and Manchester, so it wasn’t until after WWII that Chester became recognized as the perfect, semi-rural bedroom community for commuters working in the state’s two largest cities.

There is very little commercial business in Chester, and that’s just the way the town’s residents want to keep it.  Chester is close enough to commercial and industrial centers to enjoy the benefits thereof, but distant enough to leave the cares of the city behind.  Chester is centrally located to many areas of interest including the NH seacoast, the NH lakes region, state parks, beaches, municipal parks, trail systems, ski resorts, historical centers and well as many commercial destinations and countless retail outlets.  Southern NH is also very well known for its county fairs, roadside stands, flea markets, summer yard sales and antique shops.

Chester is a part of School Administrative Unit #14.  Chester educates its resident students in grades one through eight at the Chester Academy.  Chester student in grades nine through twelve are tuitioned at Pinkerton Academy in nearby Derry, NH.  At this point Chester administrators have no plans to construct a high school in Chester.

Chester, NH is the off-the-beaten-path type of town you only read about in Mark Twain novels.  Come visit Chester yourself to see why residents are so proud of their town.  If Chester seems like a place you’d like to start a family in, take the first step and call Jim Miller Bean Group at (603) 801-3987.  At Bean Group RB, we know Chester and all the other southern NH towns that so many people are just now realizing to be the perfect hometown for them.  Chester might be the perfect hometown for you  - call today for more information.
