Colebrook Rated #1
Looking for a home on a budget of $175,000 or less? Several of the best options are near the Massachusetts border.
With the lowest crime rate, the highest-ranked public schools and the third-most robust local economy in the group, Colebrook edged out Cornwall—another town in the Northwest Corner—for the top spot in this group.
Thompson, the state’s northeastern-most town, is also near the top of the list, as is Stafford, also on the state line in Tolland County.
This group does have some geographic diversity, though. If you’re interested in an affordable town along the shoreline, you might consider Westbrook, which ranks second in civic engagement, second in economic success and third in education.
