Welcome to Pelham


Historical town near forested hiking trails, rivers, and ponds

Bordering Massachusetts, this picturesque town offers parks, hiking trails, farms, and historical houses. Single-family homes occupy the majority of Pelham’s residential areas. Houses in Pelham sport a variety of architectural designs, but new and historic colonial, ranch, and farmhouse-style homes blend seamlessly into the natural and agricultural setting of this town. With tree-lined streets and forested hiking trails, the fall foliage in this town is truly a sight to behold. Pelham neighbors Salem and is also only a 30-minute drive to Manchester, making it an excellent place for peaceful, smaller town living without being too far from a vibrant downtown.

Singles and families alike with an appreciation for nature, outdoor recreation, and a strong sense of community love living in Pelham. With multiple town sports teams and festivals celebrating nature and the local community, it is easy to enjoy Pelham’s natural beauty and form close ties with neighbors. Bridge Street runs along Brook Creek, which is flecked with restaurants, shops, and a cinema.

Local Lifestyle


Pelham is home to five local sports teams and hosts six annual festivals. This is a town for knowing your neighbors and taking an interest in your community. Residents love spending time outdoors with one another and bonding over sports teams or recreational events with a local golf club, three city parks, and picturesque ponds. If you love the feel of a more natural setting, appreciate a strong sense of community, or wish to live outside of a larger city but not too far from one, Pelham checks all of these boxes.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping


Grand 38 Restaurant serves sumptuous Chinese cuisine with entrées like beef mushroom chow yoke with beef teriyaki and pork fried rice, while Yo Mas Greek Taverna and Bar offers tangy tzatzikis and flaky house-made spanakopita using organic spinach and other organically grown ingredients. Their dishes are delectable and can be paired with a Greek wine from their wine menu.

The Yolk Grill is Pelham’s breakfast shining star with stick-to-your-ribs breakfast entrées like their broken yolk breakfast served with three eggs of any style, three sausages, three pieces of bacon, a piece of roasted ham, baked beans, home fries, and a biscuit served to you in a hot skillet. Pelham’s House of Pizza is excellent for dining in or doorstep delivery with pizzas, subs, sandwiches, seafood, and desserts. Looking for sustainably grown, local produce? Brookside Farm Stand is sure to deliver.

Things to Do


Altitude Trampoline Park offers fun for all ages with private party options, dodgeball games, and other exhilarating trampoline-related games and equipment. Meanwhile, Chunky’s Cinema Pub is not your average movie theater experience. Chunky’s is a movie theater with a food, craft cocktail, and beer menu. Theater seating offers comfortable lounge chairs with plenty of space to rest your food and beverages.

Pine Valley Golf Links is a quick drive from restaurants, and shopping centers on Bridge St. Peabody Town Forest are great places to go for a run or wooded hike. George M. Muldoon Park is another great place to go for a meandering walk but also has a playground, lighted soccer and football field, a softball field, and a disc golf course. Camp Runels, a campground utilized primarily by girl scout troops but available to all, offers camping, a high ropes course, nature trails, a boating area, and more.

When it comes to festivals, Pelham residents look forward to Horribles Parade, a fall parade sponsored by Pelham’s Fire Department that offers regular and scary hayrides, scary music, treats, and refreshments. Pelham Old Home Day is a day of eating and having fun with food vendors, games, and live music. Southern New Hampshire Festival of the Trees, Independence Day Celebration, and Concerts at the Village Green happen yearly thanks to Pelham Community Spirit.
