Fitzwilliam is the “quintessential New England village” with the town common and surrounding 12 homes on the National Register for Historic Places. The 200 year-old Fitzwilliam Inn is a town landmark.
Fitzwilliam is a country community located in the southwest part of the State, within an easy 20 minute driving distance to Keene (population of 20,000 and the business center of southwestern New Hampshire). There are a wide variety of stores in our direct vicinity with a Wal-Mart and two large supermarkets just 5 miles away in Rindge.
While having some mid sized manufacturing, most businesses are small and Fitzwilliam is well known for its large number of antique shops. Outdoor opportunities abound including mountain climbing, blueberry picking both tame and wild, cross country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter and always the country roads and trails for a short walk in the quiet countryside or an all day trek through the woods. A wide variety of music and theater performances are close by at the restored Colonial Theatre in Keene, the Peterborough Players summer theatre and special music events are held at the Fitzwilliam Town Hall.
