Coos County, New Hampshire, was once home to a thriving paper-making industry, with dozens of mills employing thousands of workers. When these mills began to close in the early ’00s, unemployment rates skyrocketed and people left at an alarming pace, seeking greener pastures elsewhere. The rapid deterioration of the county and its primary city Berlin, in particular, likely contribute to home prices in the area remaining so low.
