Reviews Keene

Level 100
Overall rating: 6
Keene can be referred to as a city located in County of Cheshire, New Hampshire, US. It’s also county seat of Cheshire County.
Keene is a home to Antioch University New England and Keene State College. Moreover, it hosts Pumpkin Fest.
 Upper Ashuelot was granted in the year 1735by none other than ‘Jonathan Belcher’, colonial governor to those soldiers who had taken pains against Canada. Having settled after the year 1736, Keene had been intended of being one of the fort towns protecting province of Massachusetts Bay at the time of French and Indian Wars. In the year ... More 1741, i.e. when New Hampshire got separated from ‘Massachusetts’; boundary between the 2 went on to shift towards the south. This led to Upper Ashuelot to have become a portion of ‘New Hampshire’.
The present-day Keene is nothing but ‘Upper Ashuelot’; which was given the present name by ‘Benning Wentworth; after Sir ‘Benjamin Keene’.
Keene lies in temperate zone. So, four seasons are experienced distinctly.
The population as per 2000 census was 22955.
