If you like acres of undeveloped land with dots of farms and quiet neighborhoods than you may love Litchfield. Litchfield doesn’t boast of any big industry, they don’t have miles of retail shopping and restaurants and if you speak with many residents, that’s fine by them.
Litchfield sits south of the City of Manchester. The Merrimack River and the town of Merrimack run along its border to the west, Hudson is to its south and Londonderry to its east. It sits like an oasis in the middle of these much busier towns and city. Litchfield is serene and quiet with a population just over 8,300 (2014 US Census Bureau) and they have three public schools serving children, grades K – 12.
There’s 2 golf courses, and Darrah Pond for fishing and swimming. Also an amusement center for kids (Mel’s Funway Park) on the Charles Bancroft Highway (3A). In Litchfield the Charles Bancroft Highway is a beautiful drive with old farms and farmland along many parts of the road where you can stop and buy some local produce, fresh flowers or stop and pat some goats.
With all its country charm it’s only a 10 to 20 minute drive (depending where you live in Litchfield) to Manchester airport and all the restaurants and shopping the city has to offer.
