Whatever brings you to Manchester, a "Must See " is the historic Amoskeag Millyard, the greatest mill complex in all of North America (highlighted in purple on both banks of the Merrimack River). It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. By the early 1900s, Manchester had become the world leader in textile manufacturing, employing 15,000 people, producing up to 600 miles of cloth in a day, and exporting world wide. Today it remains an exciting center for productive business and commercial activity. Manchester provides an excellent model of 19th century urban planning. It features a thoughtful integration of manufacturing plants, river canals for power (filled in and used as roadways today), housing for employees, and a downtown center where people meet for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Stroll along the Riverwalk and marvel at how this giant complex of brick buildings ­ more than a mile long ­ has adapted to the needs of modern society. For deeper insight, visit the nearby Millyard Museum, which opened in 2001. Continue on your journey and visit the many cultural landmarks of downtown Manchester, listed at the bottom of this page. Web information is available at www.intownmanchester.com. Manchester vigorously supports its local athletic teams, and sports rivalries thrive in all seasons. Home of the Manchester Monarchs Hockey team, one of the newest members of the AHL, games are played in the exciting Verizon Wireless Arena. Located in the heart of downtown, the arena also presents ice shows, the circus, concerts, athletic contests, and a wide array of arena entertainment. Elm Street is the heart of downtown Manchester. It boasts numerous restaurants, shops and galleries, most of which are owned and serviced by local folk, who'll make sure you receive excellent value for your patronage. Please sample the excellent businesses listed in this guide.

Welcome to Manchester, NH
Where History Invites Opportunity
Consistently ranked at the top
of magazine polls for its superb
quality of life and ease of
doing business, the historic
City of Manchester is
a welcoming place to visit,
to live, to work, and to play.
An icon of the Industrial
Revolution, Manchester's
famous textile mills are, today,
the corporate headquarters
and back offices of some of the
most recognized names in the
fields high tech and financial
services. Neighborhoods
characterized by genteel
Victorian-era homes mask the

innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of our city's residents.
The spirit that nurtured the world-famous Amoskeag Mills of the
19th century continues today in a variety of ways - through fast
food kings, the MacDonald brothers, who hailed from this city;
through the establishment of
US FIRST, the nation's premier
robotics competition for high
School students; and through
a tradition of welcoming
newcomers and immigrants.
Today more than 78 foreign
languages are spoken in the
homes of Manchester's school
children. As the transportation
and cultural hub of Northern
New England, and the largest city
in New Hampshire, Manchester
is proud of its eclectic blend of
diverse culture and historic
presence. This is a city where
cutting-edge technology partners
with soccer moms and dads; where not one, but two symphonies
perform regularly in a nationally registered historic theater;
where a tradition of being a cultural melting pot continues with
vigor to form a community ethic rich with life and opportunity.

restaurants, retail shops and a calendar of events,
