Mirror Lake – Woodstock, New Hampshire
Forgotten Woodstock, New Hampshire – Chartered in September 1763 by Governor Benning Wentworth, the town of Woodstock was first incorporated as Peeling. The charter, consisting of 25,000 acres, was granted to Eli Demerit and others and was divided into ninety-eight equal shares. In 1771, the land was regranted to Nathaniel Cushman and others and divided into seventy equal shares and renamed Fairfield. Then in 1773, it was regranted as Peeling back to some of the original proprietors. The name was changed to Woodstock in 1840.
Today the mountainous landscape of Woodstock is picture perfect. And the village of North Woodstock gets so much recognition that you would think North Woodstock received its own charter. But it didn’t and is part of the Woodstock charter. Much of the town's history is well known, but some of it has been forgotten. And this blog article focuses on a few of the forgotten historical features of Woodstock.
Lincoln – Woodstock 4th of July Parade
4th of July Weekend – What a great 4th of July weekend! I hope everyone was able to get out and enjoy this incredible stretch of weather. There is no better combination for a traveler than great weather, a long weekend, and your destination being the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
I didn't shoot much over the weekend, but did enjoy the Lincoln-Woodstock Parade in Lincoln, New Hampshire, and some time hiking along the famous 15 mile long East Branch of the Pemigewasset River. Rumors claim the East Branch of the Pemi to be the most beautiful river in the White Mountains.
Beaver Pond – Kinsman Notch, New Hampshire
Beaver Pond, Kinsman Notch – Beaver Pond is a roadside attraction located along Route 112 in Kinsman Notch of the White Mountains, New Hampshire. This is a great pond to photograph during the autumn season. I find early in the morning when a reflection of the mountains can be captured in the pond the best time. The mountain reflection in Beaver Pond is excellent!
