Working in Hampden
I grew up in this little, quiet town. It is surrounded by multiple other towns which expands it's job opportunities and night life dramatically. Hampden is a rural, old farm town that is starting to grow and change with the times. The people are friendly, mostly families with children. The educational system is highly recommended which makes it a prime spot for new families. The homes are all sizes but mostly average and are spread out from one another, making it private and cozy. There are no traffic lights here, only stop signs which makes the town even more quaint. There are many old historical homes still present on Main Street and are appreciated by all who live here. I truly have been blessed to have called this small town my home! What a great place to grow up in.
Very safe and beautiful town with a rural feel yet still close to other areas with needed amenities. No pharmacy or real grocery store in town and the regional school district, in my opinion, contributes to the fact that there is no real "community". All in all, happy to live in Hampden.
I have lived in Hampden all my life. My best friends are from here, even though I go to a Wilbraham public high school since Hampden doesn't have a high school and everyone I am close I have been close with since I was ,little. I've always felt safe in this town and I know it like the back of my hand. My second job is in Hampden and all the regulars know me and care about me which is so so nice. All of my favorite childhood memories are of exploring Hampden and having fun times with my friends here.
