About Keene and the Monadnock Region

Keene is located in the heart of the Monadnock Region in the southwest corner of New Hampshire. The Monadnock Region is home to winding country roads, fields and forests, and a collection of enduring towns, villages, and mills.

The Region offers many options for dining with locally-sourced food, locally-owned shops and other businesses, numerous events throughout the year, and is home to Keene State College, Franklin Pierce University, and Antioch University. Visitors can experience many options for hiking, from a walk along an old railroad bed to the summit of Mount Monadnock – a popular destination for writers including Robert Frost, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau.
