Wolfeboro, New Hampshire and Lake Winnipesaukee

Here is a fitting moment, given the lake was the site of the first Harvard-Yale Regatta in 1852.  Harvard won.

Wolfeboro belongs to the club of classic New England towns.  It is rich in beauty and tradition with a very active commitment to community activities.

Of course, it is impossible to talk about it without also appreciating New Hampshire's largest lake, Winnipesaukee, on which it borders.


My husband's family has owned this property since the 1940s and his 9th Great Grandfather, Captain Walter Neale has been credited with "discovering" Lake Winnipesaukee.

[Insert Escher's Three Worlds reference here.]

Wolfboro's town center is also bordered on one side by Brewster Academy.

Wolfeboro itself was established in 1770.

Black's has been here forever and has the same feel as the late great The Fligors in Edgartown.

There are many loons on the lake and The Loon Center is in nearby Meredith.

This is the place for ice cream, as long as you treat the lines as community building activities.


At least some residents would prefer that Mitt Romney, who has a place one cove over from ours,  spends more time here over the next four years.

Wolfeboro hosts its annual antique car and wooden boat show, although it rained this year.

The public spaces are where many musical events are held.

Any real New Englander calls it Na Hampsha.

This was hand made and given to the town by Russian visitors.

It is a dog town.

Past the depot is a great place to go for walks.

Wolfeboro's original spelling.

This public trail was once the train route.

Perhaps the town was even more appreciated in great contrast to the day before.
