NEW HAMPSHIRE PART 4 ~ HANCOCK AND MORE ANTIQUE HOMES

For the fourth and last post on our trip to New Hampshire, I'm taking us back to Hancock where we started.
Hancock is a very small town, more like a village really. Only about 200 residents reside in the main part of the town.


Directly across the street from the Inn is the Hancock Market. A quaint little grocery store ~ just what you would expect in a little New England town.

A little further down the street is this pond. The water was like a mirror that day.

So calm and beautiful, perfectly reflecting its surroundings.


Here is the town burial ground with it's granite stones. Some date back to the very early 1800's.

They almost tell the stories of families that lived here.

Some are very sad ~ so many young children.

This view is from the burial ground looking back up Main Street.



The library is only open three days a week so plan your book borrowing needs accordingly.  : }

One morning I took a leisurely stroll so I could admire all of the antique homes.


The character, charm and history of i…

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…

ADORABLE COTTAGE KITCHEN

I saw this kitchen on Houzz recently and I thought it was just so cute and filled with so much character. I hope you enjoy it maybe while drinking  your coffee this morning.
