Under Utilized Infrastructure in Nashua – My Top 5


Areas I would like to see rehabbed, reused, and functional in Nashua.  These are all downtown or close to it…not in any order of preference.  Your thoughts?

The Franklin Mills

1. This area of Nashua is one of my favorites.  It’s for sale too.

1870 Fire Station - AKA Arts and Science Center

2. Many a memory of the Arts and Science Center.  Great location close to the library. http://jennifercote.info/nashuas-past-central-fire-station/

3. Ah, Little Florida…a hidden neighborhood.  Let’s do something with this piece of land!

4. Again, mill building.  The potential is fantastic!


The Greeley House

5. Yes, I have a fascination with Mill Buildings. This is the back of the Franklin Mills and that beautiful Greeley House.  This one is for sale too.

It’s best to walk around to really appreciate these areas…get out of the car!  I’ve blogged about a couple of them and had the pictures already.  The mill building area west of Main St (the area the Broad St Parkway will be heading into) has so much potential, so much history.

Don’t just look at the rubble, the skeletons of old buildings, the weeds and overgrowth…imagine the potential of what this area could be…please.

The End of the Hometown


When asked where’s your hometown, how do you respond: the one you were born in, or the one you grew up in?

Seeing as the median duration in a residence is only 5.2 years* most of us have moved multiple times since birth.  So people aren’t tied to one location in today’s mobile society and many are missing that connection to a town.

I would always respond that I was born in Lowell, MA but moved a couple times before Nashua…which is where I grew up.  I have a connection to both, but my hometown is Nashua.

So I ask the question in my next post: What is home?

It’s just something I’ve been thinking about, the loss of the hometown.
