Hudson, NH- Our Hometown

Hudson, NH

Founded in 1984 Harmony Real Estate was first run from a small home office.

   No longer considered a bedroom community to Nashua, Hudson, on the east bank of the Merrimack River has developed into a thriving industrial and commercial center in its own right. Its enviable proximity to critical highways is scheduled to become even more advantageous as direct access to Route 3 is achieved with a newly built roadway and exit ramp. Hudson folks are friendly and forthcoming. They volunteer to contribute to the vitality of the community in many areas, especially contributing to programs benefiting the town's children.

   A town of just over 20,000 residents and 30 square miles, Hudson offers quiet open spaces and an abundance of recreational opportunities. Two golf courses, the Robinson Pond recreation area and a number of town facilities are available for members of the community.

   Hudson offers a wide variety of housing in both suburban and rural environments.

   Alvirne High School serves Hudson, and is highly regarded academically. In addition to high school curriculum, the high school boasts a regional vocational center and important agricultural and horticultural programs that provide a unique opportunity to continue the area's farming heritage.

Origin: Once a part of Nottingham, Massachusetts, the town was

separated in 1741, and named Nottingham West. Owing to confusion with the town of Nottingham in the north, voters petitioned to have the town renamed in 1830. The name Hudson was chosen because of its position near the Merrimack River, once supposed to flow east from the Hudson River, creating the boundary line between Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
