Aside from electricity, indoor plumbing and a few paved roads, I doubt much has changed in Lempster in the last 200 or so years. This quiet charm easily takes you back to simpler times. The “center” of town is at the intersection of Rt. 10, 2nd NH Turnpike and Lempster Mountain Road. If you are […]

I know that many times, I am not catching a town at its best because of the time of the year. Marlow is one of those towns. Luckily, I had visited Marlow in previous years. I didn’t know back then I would eventually start my TouringNH site but my archived files have been a big […]

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 […]

Mont Vernon

I have to say that the weather last week left me feeling pretty uninspired. The temperature stayed in the teens, there was no snow and everything was looking a little blah. After our nor’easter this weekend, I set out to see what I could find. I drove over to Mont Vernon, a town I used […]

I was quite happy to be out and about with the weather starting to turn spring like. I saw my first real sign of spring while I was in Francestown. In front of a lovely old farm house, I saw my first crocus of the year… The snow melt has filled the streams and brooks […]

It has taken me several months to get up the courage to tackle a city. There is just so much to see, I wasn’t sure how I wanted to go about it. I finally decided that Keene would be the first city I would tour. It is about 1/2 an hour from my house and […]

The rural beauty that is Sullivan ensures return visits from me in all of the seasons. It was easy for me to picture it in the vibrant greens of summer or the blazing reds and oranges of fall. On my way to Bolster Pond, I got quite a chuckle at the sign I saw… Since it […]

The winter skies of March are starting to bring me down. Both times this week when I traveled to the rural town of Marlborough, it was spitting snow. While snow-covered trees and roads can make for some peaceful feeling photos, the grey skies leave me longing for spring. But…March does herald the beginning of maple […]

There are many adjectives I could use to describe Harrisville: beautiful, lovely, gorgeous, serene, peaceful, I could go on and on.  Harrisville is a mere 20 minutes from my house and I had never taken the time to enjoy it. I had previously driven through on my way somewhere else, but it deserves much more than […]

Greenville is one of New Hampshire’s smallest towns at only 6.9 square miles. It is also the 3rd youngest town in New Hampshire. I was worried that I wouldn’t find enough to blog about, but, boy was I wrong! The center of town is rich in history with old mills, now repurposed for businesses and […]
