Hope mill


A visit to the Hope Mill will take you back a couple of centuries. The mill and dam remain on their original site, contributing to the unique character of this historic landmark of Peterborough County. Operation continues today, locals can bring their logs to have them sawed down and artisans still make furniture and other wooden goods to sell onsite. Although it's tucked back into a rural area, it was certainly worth a visit. I am linking this one to Barn Charm.

PS: This photo was taken with my iPhone. Unfortunately I forgot to put my memory card back in the camera. But I don't think it turned out too bad.

elle est belle, mais elle mériterait un peu de restauration

Considering that my cell can barely phone, this house didn't turn out too bad...

I think that it worked quite well!

That's amazing and wonderful! I would love to visit and see the work going on there! May it live on forever!

Thanks for your comment on Walmart. There are so many ways they affect a community negatively. It's really a shame!

That is a really good iPhone photo. Mine never look any good. I think I need a lesson.

What a beautiful place & I love that they've brought the old back... I don't think I've heard of a place that does that, esp not around here. Awesome!

Thank you so very much for joining in & liking up to Barn Charm =) Have a great weekend

Very nice shot. Reminds me a bit of the barn that sits at the local woolen mill museum.

Wow, I haven't visited CDP much lately, but I saw your small picture in today's portal and knew right away it was the Peterborough Liftlocks. I read your post and saw that you had visited Hopes Mill and worked my way back to these photos. I grew up in Keene and this we "the" swim hole for the area. We especially loved making our way under the falls where you were safe from the water from above. We would then slide down the slippery spillway. It was so much fun. Alas, that kind of fun is no longer allowed - too much of a liability. Thanks so, so much for the memories.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
