I probably should have saved Rindge for a different time of year, but once again, this will give me a good reason to go back. Rindge is home to the Cathedral of the Pines. The grounds are open from May to October. I was able to see a small amount of their 236 acres, but a spring walk is definitely in order.






Wonderful view of Monadnock

Wonderful view of Monadnock



On the hillside below the Cathedral is a lovely farm. I watched for a bit while the flock of turkeys made their way across the fields. I wish I had been able to get a good shot of the turkeys. I was funny to watch them trudge through the snow that was deeper than they are tall…


I found a neat building near the town common, the spires remind me of something out of Ali Baba…


There is a gazebo on the common, all decked out for the Holidays with a lovely church in the background…



Once again, I managed to find roads that are on the map and my GPS, but not necessarily passable in the winter. Luckily this road wasn’t too bad, although I did end up in Jaffrey because the road I was going to turn onto to stay in Rindge was closed. I’m glad I attempted this road because I was rewarded with a great view of Monadnock…



Of course, Monadnock is not the only mountain you can see from Rindge…

I'll bet this is spectacular in the fall

The entry way to Franklin Pierce University was was made festive by the wreaths and the snow cover…


The Hometown Diner certainly look inviting…


Perhaps next time I am in Rindge, I’ll stop in for a taste of their home cooking!

    What a great view into a town I have passed through but taken little notice of. I am particularly intrigued by the gazebo. It seems every town has one and the architecture is all so different. So New England in the snow! Thanks for the tour.

      Most of the towns I’ve visited have a gazebo on the town common. They do look nice all decorated for the holidays and the snow does top it off perfectly.

    I discovered that same road last fall and took photos of the mountain from just about the same spot. It has become one of my favorite views, but I guess I won’t be seeing it in winter. I realized as I read your post that I’ve been all over Rindge but have never seen the town center. I’ll have to do something abot that when the snow melts. Have a Merry Christmas!

      You can get to that spot coming from the Jaffrey side, but unless you have 4 wheel drive I wouldn’t come from the university. There are some great old buildings in the town center. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    I think you went at exactly the right time of year. It looks wonderful with the snow.

      Thank you. I thought the pews looked neat with the snow on them.

I'd love to know what you think!
