Yes! We have a welcoming ‘Welcome Wagon’ committee and try to give new residents a packet that has general info about Nelson. The packet includes the Nelson phone book, (phone numbers of the town’s municipal offices and neighbors’ numbers) volunteer opportunities, a schedule for regular Nelson activities, and a list of the walking and hiking trails, etc. Information is updated on an as needed basis.

The nearest gas station is 6 miles up the road
The Post Office is in Sullivan
Groceries can be purchased in Keene
The Library is in the center of town
Restaurants? Hmmmmm. There are hundreds – just not here in Nelson

The committee members aren’t always aware right away when someone new has moved into town, so we sometimes give packets to people when they register to vote and/or the Nelson Town Clerk sometimes gives packets to people who see her at the Town Offices.
