New in Town?

If you are a newcomer and we haven’t found you yet, please give one of us a call or send an email.  We’d love to welcome you to Nelson!
The Nelson Welcome Committee has a useful packet with information about local services, hours and contact information, Nelson activities and interest groups, hiking trails, the Keene transfer station, and a short history of Nelson.  We are available to come to your home and welcome you to our town, or we can send you a packet if you would like one.

For those who are already residents of Nelson, if you would like to help newcomers settle in or want to pay a visit to a new neighbor, we encourage you to obtain a packet from The Welcome Committee. If you would like a committee member to go with you, we can arrange that as well.
