Working in Rindge
I've grown up in Rindge. I'm biased, so take this with a grain of salt, but there's a lot of racism, plenty of drug usage, lots of people come up from Mass on the weekends to go shopping so there's no parking, the housing situation is terrible, and - on top of all that - you have the option of working at a pizza place for minimum wage or driving 45 minutes to work at some other low paying job. So unless you work from home, forget being able to afford to live let alone raising a family. The school system sucks. Since it's such a small town, you deal with a lot of the everyone knows you and your business - even if they don't - they'll talk. Overall, it's depressing and from top to bottom has no redeemable qualities.
Rindge is overall a fairly friendly area, but it is very rural and there is not much to do directly in-town outside of outdoor activities.
This area is beautiful, right under Mount Monadnock. However, with this comes the neighboring town of Jaffrey. Rindge is a richer area, until you cross the town line. Jaffrey is poorer and more urban. There are, as much as I hate to say it, drug issues in Jaffrey. Also, Conant High School is focused on their basketball team, resulting in the defunding of many classes and areas of the school. Rindge has been good about trying to keep up with changes. I would choose to live in Rindge again, but never Jaffrey.
