The Upper Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire is a distinctive region that at its heart includes towns that straddle a roughly 40-mile stretch of the Connecticut River...from Windsor, Vermont, and Cornish, New Hampshire, in the south to Bradford, Vermont, and Piermont, New Hampshire, in the north and anchored by Hanover, New Hampshire and Norwich, Vermont at its center. The region's name was coined in the 1950s by the Valley News, the area's local newspaper, to better define it's circulation area.
The Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont is a dynamic, scenic and prosperous place to live and work.
