Today marks three weeks since we arrived in New Hampshire. It seems longer than that I guess because we have done so much already to become residents.
Here's a brief tour.
The center of town is formed around this green called Colburn Park. A very large rectangle of grass, trees, pathways, benches, tables, a bandstand and playground. This is where the Farmer's Market is on Thursday afternoons.
Here's Dan buying us spring rolls at the farmer's market.
On the north side of the park is this Civil war statue. Made of wood surprisingly and just coated to look bronze.
It stands in front of this building, the Soldiers Memorial Building.
Next door is the Opera House and Town offices currently under renovation.
The Lebanon Mall is next on the west side. Three Tomatoes is a good restaurant there.
On the southside of the park is the Congregational Church.
On the east side is the library (below) and post office (no photo).
A lovely cemetery is behind the church and comes out on School Street which is one of the spokes of streets exiting the center of town.
In one section all the memorials were these obelisks. Must have been popular then.
Lebanon has the start of the Northern Rail Trail.
The trail is very popular on weekends. We see the cars parked at the Recreation Center lot with the bike racks.
On the other side of the Lebanon Mall is the Mascoma River Greenway. This will soon be connected with the rail trail once the tunnel under the mall parking is completed.
We used it to walk to the auto repair shop where our car was inspected. We needed a new muffler.
Looking back the way we came.
That's a brief intro to our new home town. Much more to come.
