A Cemetery Photo That I Took in NH
Cemeteries Around Lake Winnipesaukee
There are fascinating stories to be learned about the old cemeteries around Lake Winnipesaukee. Find out from this book about the Native Americans who preceded the early settlers. There are pictures and stories of ministers, old soldiers, doctors and colorful deaths and sad stories.
I find old cemeteries and the carved headstones quite intriguing. This includes cemeteries from Wolfboro, Meredith, Laconia and so on around the lake.
The Doctor's House in Wakefield, NH
Wakefield and Brookfield
Filled with delightful images of long ago New Hampshire, this photo history does an excellent job of entertaining and informing. The old photos are well-captioned and lead the reader through the development of the Wakefield-Brookfield villages including colonial experiences, the mills, early camps around the lakes, the importance of the railroad, and the ice industry. I was amazed that 25 railroad cars of ice left the area daily during the peak of the ice harvesting, before modern refrigeration.
What a treat to see long ago families in their old-fashioned clothing, old schoolhouses, and other scenes of bygone times. I loved it. (review by Virginia Allain)
