Green Acres is a largely postwar suburban neighborhood located in eastern Manchester. This neighborhood is bordered by Laydon Street to the north, Interstate 93 to the east, Interstate 293 to the south, and Mammoth Road to the west.
Before being renamed Manchester in the early 19th Century, the City was known as Derryfield, and Green Acres served as its first Center. The area was an important stop for the early stagecoach travelling from Londonderry. Construction of Mammoth Road, which runs through this neighborhood, began in 1834. This project was originally opposed by both Manchester and Londonderry because of the cost of the construction and concern that this road would not benefit these towns. Mammoth Road quickly became the center of Green Acres and is a highly utilized road in the present day.
