Nelson has been cited as the first New Hampshire Town to hold what has now become Old Home Day, a celebration that happens in many towns throughout the state.

Parke Struthers wrote a great account of this annual event which was first published in the Grapevine (Nelson’s former print newsletter) in 1993. You can read it here on the Nelson History website.
