    Main Street
    Every October since 1991, when a grand total of 600 lit jack-o-lanterns were assembled on the main square, Keene has celebrated the joy of the pumpkin in a way that no other town in the region or the world has been able to match. Rain or shine, the yearly tally now routinely tops 20,000 and hit a world record 28,000 in 2006. This is a sight to see, and the all-day street fair is a delight for young and old. Not to be missed.

  • Colony Mill Marketplace

    West Street on the southern edge of downtown Keene
    Once a mill making fine wool products, is now an enclosed shopping mall as well as various office spaces on the upper floors. During the last several years, the stores at the Mill have dwindled, and it is no longer a must-shop in Keene, but for the exceptional Toadstool Bookshop on the second floor.
