Temple is a small town in Southern New Hampshire. We are next to Peterborough and Wilton New Hampshire. Temple is a cute town, most of the people keep to themselves. We have a church, town store, gas station, town offices and a volunteer fire department. Temple is also home to Ben's Sugar Shack and the Connolly Brothers dairy farm, store and maple syrup shack. Temple mountain and Pack Monadnock are nearby and are have great hiking trails and scenic overlooks.

Temple is a small town in NH, it is very close to Peterborough, NH which has a lot of local businesses and the middle/high school. Temple has a few small businesses itself and smaller outdoor based activities such as hikes.
In my area there are varying numbers of local businesses. Some towns have excellent small stores in which you can find many types of products, often artistic. Shopping in local downtowns is often more productive when shopping for gifts. Other towns have mostly large commercial businesses, which are more useful for general living products. However, some stores combine these purposes, such as a local hardware store which holds most products needed for home repair while retaining the personal small-town environment.
