When Steve and I left Clough State Park We headed up to the Everett Dam. It adjoins the park and offers another area to explore.  The walk from the parking area to the start of the trail system is about a half mile along the top of the dam…


You can look down and see the spillway and river that flow from the other side…


The dam is maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers and there is quite a network of hiking and biking trails. At the beginning of the trails, there is a beautiful gazebo for picnicking…


There are several other lakes, streams, ponds and rivers to check out in Weare as well…



This building had a for sale sign on it. I was tempted to call the number just so I could see the inside. I don’t know, but it looks to me like this might have been a school house at one time or maybe a church…


As we left Weare, I thought about all of recreational opportunities and decided not to wait 20 years before I go back and enjoy them!

    What a gorgeous building! I wonder what its history is? The dam is very impressive. Reminded me of the McDowell dam in Peterborough that was also built by the Army Corps. Great shots!!

      I came so close to calling the number on the sign, just to see the inside and get the history. The dams are very similar except you can drive across McDowell.

    That really is a beautiful house! That dam looks just like Surry and Otter Brook dams here. It’s funny how they all look so much alike, like cookie cutter dams.

      I think when the Army Corps finds a design that works, they stick with it. I know the Everett Dam did its job in 2006!

    I don’t think I’d have been able to resist the house. I’ve only ever seen one dam and that was Aswan Dam in Egypt.

      We seem to have quite a few dams around here. Most if them were built by the Army Corps of Engineers for flood control. I’d love to travel to Egypt some day!

I'd love to know what you think!
