Looking Ahead

Old Home Day Dates (second Saturday of August)



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. 

Back in the day – Edgar Seaver conducts the Chesham Band.


Nelson Old Home Week 2022 (August 1 – 6) was incredibly successful (after a 2-year hiatus).

Every component seemed to work magically, though really it was the dedication and hard work from a number of volunteers.

This page will be updated periodically with information about next year’s Old Home Week.
