Canterbury Reviews

3 reviews
Canterbury is an extremely pleasant place to live, if you don't mind the New England weather. The town seems to have more of a community than Concord, our capital city. It is a rural area with a multitude of farms and large properties for one to own land and livestock. The town center has a quaint little market near the elementary school and local church. It is only a few minute drive to the middle of Concord.
