Walpole

Walpole possesses one of the state's most perfect town greens. Bordered by Elm and Washington streets, it's surrounded by homes dating to 1790 or so, when the townsfolk constructed a canal around the Great Falls of the Connecticut River, bringing commerce and wealth to the area. The town now has 3,200 inhabitants, more than a dozen of whom are millionaires. Walpole is also home to Florentine Films, documentarian Ken Burns's production company.
