Mason Reviews

Mason, being a small town in New Hampshire, everyone knows everyone in this town and are always offering help to each other. The Police Force, though small, is very active and located right across from the elementary school. Our biggest attraction in Mason is Parker's Maple Barn, a family run restaurant. They offer large breakfasts, and have a cute little gift shop. It is a very active town with hiking trails, town softball/baseball leagues, and old railroad beds to explore. Overall I enjoy living in Mason, however, commuting to work can be exhausting. It can also be expensive, there are no grocery stores or gas stations within the town. They all are a minimum of 10 minutes away. But the views in Mason are worth it, you will almost always see wildlife driving through Mason.

Mason is a quiet town in southern New Hampshire. Our elementary school is excellent. Our history includes Uncle Sam and Elizabeth Orton Jones aka "Twig." There are trails for biking, hiking, and horseback riding.We are home to Parker's Maple Barn and Pickety Place. I have lived in Mason for 17 years and have loved every minute of it. The one thing I would like to change of my experience in Mason would be my community involvement.
The people in Mason are friendly and will help a neighbor in need! the only complaint might be that there aren't enough of them with such a small population!
