It's very small and secluded. There isn't a whole lot to do, but it's very quiet with a lot of nature. There's a really good pizza place downtown and a small town pool with a playground. Many of the people know each other here.

This town is quite small and tight knit. Most of the residents are related and, therefore, if you are not a part of the family, you tend to be seen as an outsider. I would absolutely not choose to live here again if I got to do it all over. I would say that its rank is fairly low in comparison to other places in the country and as far as its future, sadly I have a feeling it will go downhill.
This town is pretty much a mini Finland. 90% of the people here are related and if you aren't a part of that inner circle, you only have a very small pool of individuals to choose from for friends. Some of us who are not of Finland origin end up somehow becoming a part of their privileged club but, for the most part, the line dividing the Finns from everyone else is fairly distinct. At the same time, the limited number of other people to form connections with makes the links we do make even stronger. New Ipswich is a small town to begin with so if you only look at the people who are not Finnish, it's miniscule. As far as the future of the area, I have a feeling it's either going to keep growing with the Finnish families or it's going to destroy itself. I highly doubt it won't change because it is balancing on a very thin fence. I just hope I'm not around when it falls to one side.
