On our recent trip to New Hampshire, I was able to slip away to photograph the beautiful town square.
Most New England towns have a town square or 'Commons', usually surrounding a beautiful park.
This beautiful town is Raymond, N.H.
All of the buildings have lovely Colonial architecture and colors.
Flowering trees framed the views.
Even the fire station was a lovely example of colonial style.
Two large churches anchored the 'square', one on each side.
It was a lovely Sunday morning and the church bells were ringing.
Such a beautiful sound.
All four sides with a clock to remind parishioners of the time.
Beautiful scalloped shingles surround a round stained glass window.
Imagine the lucky people that live in these gorgeous homes!
Waking up to church bells and a view of the park.
The weather was so lovely, with flowering trees and singing birds.
Another lovely home that might have once been an Inn.
And what respectable town square doesn't have it's commemorative statue?
With a plaque to honor his name.
This sweet little restaurant was founded by my Mother in Law, passed down to my Sister in Law, but now sold to a new owner.
The beautiful old train station is now a museum.
Step up and get your ticket here!
We can go to Portsmouth, Maine or Concord, Mass.
And maybe ride in the caboose!
I love the old Trusses!
A beautiful overhang to stand under!
Old storage buildings stand watch behind.
And as we drive away from the pretty little town, this iconic building catches my eye.
Perhaps once an old hospital? Or a large Inn?
Thank you for coming along on my tour of Raymond, N.H.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
