NEW HAMPSHIRE PART 3 ~ HISTORIC JAFFREY CENTER

One of the towns we drove to while in New Hampshire was Jaffrey.
Look how pretty the drive was. 
You can see the Monadnock Mountains in the distance.


An area of Jaffrey has been established as the
Jaffrey Center Historic District.

This is the Meeting House which was raised in 1775.
It was used for town meetings and church services.


The first church in Jaffrey.





Hubby is reading this sign about 
The Old Burying Ground.



~ as you can see, this stone is from the year 1800 ~



The historic or "Antique" homes have little placques
with the year they were built.
Do you see the '1790' on the chimney?



This adorable house has a sign with the year 1830 right next to the flag.
After walking around for awhile, those adirondack chairs looked very inviting.


Such a lovely place and again we had picture perfect weather ~
just look at that beautiful blue sky!

I hope you can stand one more post about our New Hampshire trip.
I have more antique homes and more of the town of Hancock to show you
and then I'll be done - promise!

  1. What an adorable town! Love the little red school house and the white house you featured, so very charming, both of them. It reminds me of many similar towns and hamlets in Southern Ontario. Thanks for sharing and don't hesitate to show us more! :-)

  2. I love all of the pictures. We were in New Hampshire for the first time this past summer while we traveled through New England, and I too fell in love with this town. You did an amazing job capturing it's true beauty.

    Have a great day!

  3. What a beautiful area. That drive was amazing! I love the historical homes and that little red school house. Hubby and I vacationed in Door County, WI a few years ago. There were Adirondack chairs everywhere. They were so pretty in assorted colors. I couldn't help but snap pictures and try a few out. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup. Happy to be a new follower!
    hugs,

  4. Beautiful New England. Love your photos. Makes me want to go for a walk in an historic section of town, but since the leaves are gone, it wouldn't be as pretty as your photos.
