Dunbarton

Well, I guess the sign says it all. But what is Dunbarton the “Best” of?

It is the best place to unload your ATV or snowmobile and explore the Hopkinton-Everett Trails Area.

I didn’t hike any of the trails, but I did stop along the road to the parking area and check out the views…

Dunbarton-9300

Pretty ice formation in the middle of the road

.

It is one of the best places to stop and take a picture of how to build a road in a flood control plain…

Dunbarton-9312

It is the best place to see a mural of Patches & Polly. Note the plaque to the left of the barn door, Dunbarton has an amazing number of well maintain/restored historic homes and buildings.

It is the best place to take in the views overlooking the Kuncanowet Town Forest and Conservation Area…

It is also one of the best places to see a smiling carved bear…

Or spend some time enjoying the sunlight over the marsh…

Dunbarton certainly can claim to be the “Best” of many things, but, perhaps its least bragged about is the fact it is the “Best” place to find the geographical center of New England! According to an article published in the Boston Globe in 2008, the center of New England is located at 43.117199 degrees latitude and -71.593498 degrees longitude which places it in Dunbarton!

Have you ever visited Dunbarton? What did you think it was “Best” of?

    Love the stone building. Was it a barn? Did I miss the town sign?

      I’m not sure what the purpose of the stone building was. I t may have been the blacksmith shop. I did take a picture of the town sign, but decided to use the “Dunbarton is the Best” sign instead.

    The view of the river is stunning. What a beautiful perspective to see it from.

      Thank you Sue. Winter has definitely arrived. So chilly by the river.

    This is another town I’ve never visited, I’m afraid. It looks like a nice quiet place and sure has some great views!

      You’d really enjoy the hiking trails. It’s definitely close enough to warrant a visit.

    I like the wreath on the historic building. Very cool.

    That little stone building is lovely and the carved bear reminds me of the ones I saw in Toronto.

      Aren’t chainsaw carvings cool!?

    Is there any commemoration or site plaque of the Rogers’ homestead of Robert Rogers fame in Dunbarton?

I'd love to know what you think!
