Stewartstown

Stewartstown is probably most famous as the final resting place of Metallak, an Abenaki Chief. His biography is quite interesting.

His marker was the newest of the headstones in the cemetery. There are quite a few trinkets and memorials on and near his grave.

Just up the road from the cemetery is the North Hill Church…

I found quite a few abandoned camps in Stewartstown. Every time I see one, I always wonder about the people that had stayed or lived there. I have found some that appeared as though the people just ceased to exist, furnishings and evidence of their stay still in place, awaiting their return. Others I have found have been nearly demolished by years of neglect…

I think what caught my eye, as I was driving by, was the scrap of curtain still in the window.

I have to say I’m quite content living in the age of indoor plumbing!

Obviously before the days of recycling

Although I found many places where time seems to have stopped, the many farms I saw prove that life still goes on in Stewartstown…

Had the weather been better, I’m sure the views would have been astounding…

But the overcast did make for a great time to photograph the streams…

Part of Coleman State Park, including Little Diamond Lake is in Stewartstown. Maybe when I have completed all of the towns in New Hampshire I will attempt to visit all of the state parks.

I couldn’t find an official town website, but you can visit the state’s website for more information about Stewartstown.

    Laura, I love the fact that he died “a town charge” back in the days when people took care of each other…great shots!

      Yes, back when it took a village to raise a child. If only everyone took care of each other that way, what a great world it would be!

    This is another town I’ve never heard of. I can’t believe there are so many! I like the old shacks. I always wonder why they were built where they were.

      I think some of them were hunting shacks/cabins before the roads were put in. I love exploring them. You never know what you’re going to find.

I'd love to know what you think!
