Cornish

I have been to Cornish many times over the years and I always find something new to photograph. Cornish will be turning 250 years old this year. The first time I went to Cornish was when I was photographing the covered bridges of Sullivan County. There are 3 covered bridges in Cornish, including one of the two bridges that span the Connecticut River (the other is in Columbia, NH) I’ve always like covered bridges and the history that goes with them.

I visited the Saint-Gaudens National Historical Site for the first time. I’m glad I did! What a cool place. When the government shutdown is over, I will link to the official site, but for now here is the Wikipedia link for Saint-Gaudens.

The Thornless Honeylocust tree on the far right of the photo was planted around 1868 and it is HUGE!! It would take several people to reach fingertips around its circumference.

People often ask me what my favorite town has been so far and that is really hard to answer. Every town has its own beauty, but Cornish would definitely be in my top 5! Thank you for coming along on my tour. Please leave a comment and feel free to share my link.

    Cornish is one place I’ve always wanted to visit but I never seem to get there. It’s as beautiful as I’ve heard it was.

      I really enjoyed Cornish. As I said, I have been there several times and always find something new.

    Laura, your photos of the pantry and the flowers were stunning. I can’t wait to visit. Thank you for showing me a part of our wonderful state I was unaware of.

      Thank you Martha. When the gov’t shut down is over, we’ll have to get together and go!

I'd love to know what you think!
