Fairwood is located in the picturesque town of Dublin, New Hampshire, in the heart of the Monadnock region in the southwest corner of the state, one hour from Manchester, the state’s largest city, and two hours from Boston, Massachusetts.
Situated at the foot of Mt. Monadnock, Fairwood has a grand view of the mountain from its grounds. The surrounding woodlands and rural location, the accessibility of Dublin Lake just one mile away, and the beautiful seasonal changes all contribute to a peaceful atmosphere that helps people connect with the presence of God.
There are over 100 acres of woodland and trails for hiking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. Being located near the base of Mt. Monadnock makes mountain hiking a favorite pastime.
The spacious Main House, an early 20th century “summer home,” houses the library and student chapel, and the main parlor, dining room, and kitchen, as well as (upstairs) the dorm for the women students and some apartments for staff.
The gymnasium and sports field provide a great outlet for athletic achievement and physical energy. The field has a softball diamond, soccer field and outdoor volleyball court. The gym is used year round for activities like basketball, volleyball, and indoor soccer.
There are family lodges, a campground, and a large dining hall that are primarily used for periodic church conventions. There are also several staff homes and apartments on campus.
A campus bookstore, radio station, woodshop, and garage are also places where students learn special skills and put their Christianity into practice.
The men’s dormitory houses the male students and includes spaces for fellowship, study, and men’s meetings, as well as a workout room.
