Working in Pittsfield
I think the town of Pittsfield is a not too shabby place to live. But the school needs some improvement. The sidewalks require fixing up because they are filled with cracks. They have a nice park with a playground and a baseball field. You can even go fishing in the nearby lake. I personally like Pittsfield due to one thing: The balloon festival. Every summer, in early August hot air balloons, would go up around six in the morning and once again before the sunset. My family would get up early to see them a year. Down at our park, there would be a little caravel where there would be some rides, a couple of vendors, and junk food carts. Other than that nothing much happens here. So if you want a nice calm place to live, come to Pittsfield.
I have lived in Pittsfield for a total of 19 years. I have found it a nice town and have enjoyed living here. There are some beautiful walking trails and a nice field open to the public for baseball, soccer, and other sports. I was home schooled which means that my experience with the school is little. I did go to do the SATs there in my senior year of high school and everything went smoothly. We live on the outskirts of town near the Loudon town line. A few years ago the library had to close the children's section of the library due to fire code. It took many years to fix and in that period of time we became apart of another town's library due to the fact that we could touch and handle the books we wanted to take out. Overall I have loved living in Pittsfield and it will be hard to call another place home.
Beautiful town with lots of conveniences for a couple just starting out. We have 2.5 acres, and a beautiful home/property but a grocery store/butcher/pharmacy/hardware store within 5 minutes. Town is moving up, schools are improving and while the rankings are lower, if you look at year on year progress the students do fine just a lot of them enter kindergarten behind. Perfect place until kids are in middle school, and if the schools keep improving this might be our forever home. Concord is an easy commute and has good jobs.
