Over in nearby Kennsington, there was the Union House...

Built in 1939-1840, this was a Universalist Church for the town.

To the right is the Town Hall, which was built in 1733, replaced in 1770, and then dismantled (town thought it was too large), and rebuilt in 1840. Now used for town offices and police department.

There was, what seemed to be an old Congregational Church just across the street...

It was built in 1825 and redecorated in 1879, and there were several remodeling and renovations since.

Lastly, there was the Kennsington Social Library...

A cool building on the National Registry of Historic places. Not much info on it, other that it was put into operation in 1895.

I don't know if my shot selection is right.

Day 12 near misses in Laconia...

Gale Memorial Library

Tough choice, as I really liked this building. The library was built in 1903 and funded by the will of a local banker, Napoleon Bonaparte Gale.

Belknap Mill

This was mentioned in my main thread. I didn't pick it because they were doing work on it with a dumpster on this side, crane on the other side, ladders on the back side, and works and equipment all over.

Built in 1865 by one of the mill owners. I couldn't get a good angle on the house.

A few other building in Laconia...

Evangelical Baptist Church

Another building on the list of historical places, this was built in 1836 and restyled in 1871 (according to Wikipedia).

Laconia Passenger Station
Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available)

Wikipedia...
"The station was built in 1892 to a design by New York City architect Bradford Gilbert. Gilbert is best known for designing the first steel-framed curtain wall building, the Tower Building in New York, but also designed a number of railroad stations, at least five of which are on the National Register. It was built for the Boston, Concord, and Montreal Railroad, which was acquired three years later by the Boston & Maine. The size and scale of the station were due in part to the activism of Charles Busiel, a local businessman who was later governor of New Hampshire. It is one of the only 19th-century stations of this scale and architectural sophistication to survive in the state.

The station served the railroad until 1965, with portions of it dedicated to local police and court functions as early as 1963. The building has since been repurposed for commercial uses."

While in Ossipee New Hampshire for my town historical hunt, I had these runners-up...

This is a head on shot of the court house, which is nice, except I had some glare from the sun (which is why I opted for the one in my thread, as I new this angle was going to be tough)...

There also was the Second Congregational United Church of Christ in Ossipee...

Not sure of the age of the building and I couldn't find the First Congregational church, which I found out was in "Center Ossipee" and not "Ossipee", I guess a separate town, about five miles away.

Gale Memorial Library, Laconia Passenger Station

I love Romanesque Revival - churches, libraries and particularly RR stations. The library is a late example and seems to incorporate some eclectic features.

In Madison, near Silver Lake, there is a post office that was a train station. They have a bunch of locomotives on display. I posted a few shots in CS 718.

Day 15 North Hampton out-takes, but worth mentioning...

North Hampton United Church of Christ
Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available)

Right next to Centennial Hall, an elegant and old church.

North Hampton Union Chapel
Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available)

This cute little chapel, built in 1877, is right next to the ocean.

In the same historic district with the chapel are a bunch of huge, expensive homes near the Atlantic ocean. There are also many historical homes like this one built in 1870...

I really wanted to take a picture of the town hall in North Hampton. Built in 1844, it is one of the prettiest halls, I've ever seen, and very well taken care of. Of course, it was being worked on... :(

I've scarcely been keeping up with creating a daily image these last few days, and resorted to opportunity shots and a couple closeups. I'll try to catch up with everyone's main threads over the weekend. For the moment, in case anyone would like to see...

Here are color versions of my images from the 13th and 16th.

Wow, there are some great shots here!

Mine is boring in comparison. Our mud room innundated with pears—lots and lots of pairs of pears!

Very nice, but I must admit the B7W are just fabulous.
