# of Reasons to Move to Grafton, New Hampshire
« on: April 20, 2009, 11:49:48 am »

It's been discussed that it would be good idea for each particular City/Area in New Hampshire to have a list of reasons why you should move there. 

As this is a big job for one, I thought it would be a good idea to start some different City threads and then Unleash everyone who knows, to be free to put up their Reasons to move to Grafton (in this case), and when we get a good list for each one, then they can be condensed and typed up, one after the other.

So if you know any Good reasons to Move to Grafton, New Hampshire, please speak up so we can help make it easier for those moving here to figure out which area fits them best.

1)  It's the Home of the infamous Burning Porcupine Party.

2) Free Staters are on Planning Board :).  Please see Lloyd's correction below.

3) Extremely quiet Scenic peaceful place to live.

2 is inaccurate. There are two libertarians on the planning board, one a native and the other a resident for almost 20 years. We have a Freestater elected to the Supervisor Of The Checklist and two more appointed to town positions. We have taken these posts to try to protect citizens rights and property.

4) Police Chief is a Peace Officer.

Thanks for the correction Lloyd.  I'll strike it.  I guess I heard something to that effect at Murphy's one night, but it is a little loud in there! (opps, my bad).

and the very idea of Burning Porcupine is  making a statist in Westmoreland so nervous she put it in an article in the keene sentinel

Can you blame her for worrying about the rampant cannibalism among Free Staters?

5)  Neighboring Orange, NH has Mount Cardigan. . . a great mountain of over 3000 feet that's a great challenge for fat people who like to think they can hike like they did 10 years ago.  Next time I'll get to the top!

Grafton is beautiful, and the people I met there don't want to put me in cuffs like some of the less vocal majority might like.

Grafton is beautiful.  If you get a chance, could you post the pictures of the recent softball game on this forum?

Thanks for creating this thread.  I've really enjoyed all of my time in Grafton.  I understand why liberty lovers are attracted to the place.

Thanks Keith, it was fun, and it was Dreepa who said, after viewing the Keene and Seabrook 101 Reasons Threads, that it would be a good idea for all towns to have something like that.  I encourage others to start their own, for their area, if it's not allready started. 

I didn't reallize it at first but because of where Grafton is now, with all it's existing Freedom (to Build, etc.) that this is another area I'd like to help promote.  I guess it's kind of like a Quiet Scenic PostCard that has yet to be filled in with the man made comforts to be determned.  Fun Stufph.

Isn't Grafton the place where there are (almost) no zoning rules? That is a big reason to move there.

Also, isn't it the place that due to some quirky geography, the winters are slightly milder?

You're probably thinking of the seacoast.

6. Very low taxes.

7. Lots of land available (for self sufficiency, for example).

8. Proliberty, anti-gov locals.

9. Not too far from Concord (49 minutes, according to googlemaps), which generally has jobs available.  Being the State's capitol, it is more recession resistant than other areas.  It takes no more time to reach the State House from Grafton than it does from the seacoast.
