NEW HAMPSHIRE SUNDAY MORNING
Exploring this wonderful State of New Hampshire is something my husband and I never tire of! There are so many diverse attractions and ever-changing landscapes...the possibilities are endless!
Not too long ago I picked up a great book called BEST NEW HAMPSHIRE DRIVES-14 Tours in the Granite State, by Kay and Bill Scheller.
We decided on an "abbreviated" version of Tour#9 The Eastern Border Lakes. This tour took us out of Conway and around Lake Ossipee!
One of our first stops was the Governor Wentworth Historic Site. This was the site of the Wentworth house one of New Hampshire's most refined eighteenth century plantations. It's owner/designer was John Wentworth II (1737-1820). He was the second and last governor of the Province of New Hampshire.
This was a Grand retreat built on 6,000 acres overlooking Lake Wentworth. John Wentworth had a 45 mile road built to connect his mansion to Portsmouth! This wonderful retreat burned to the ground in 1820, coincidentally the year of Wentworth's death!
All that remains is a historical marker...and an old well!
We continued on towards Effingham. Effingham is the home of the first "Normal " School.The second floor of this school was eventually the First State Teachers College! A rather un-pretentious beginning for a well respected profession!
Next door to the school was the magnificent Squire Lord'sMansion. Such a beautiful building with a second floor PaladianWindow and an Octagonal Domed Cupola. It was built by Isacc Lord in 1820.
The remainder of our outing was spent enjoying the wonderful, exciting and historic buildings of Wakefield.Twenty six of the 18th and 19th century buildings in this Historic Area are on the National Register ofHistoric Places

Well, we only made a dent in the plan of the tour! An overnight stay would have been welcomed but hadn't been planned for. So, we headed home to Concord, New Hampshire our minds eye filled with grand historical images.
Come travel the back-roads of New Hampshire. There are wonderful examples of our history around every corner!
