Saint-Gaudens National Historic Park

Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park in Cornish, NH, preserves the home, gardens, and studios of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of America's foremost sculptors. This was his summer residence from 1885 to 1897, his permanent home from 1900 until his death in 1907, and the center of the Cornish Art Colony.

Visit the Work Studio and Gardens of this renowned sculptor. Explore Aspet, the home of Augustus, Augusta and Homer Saint-Gaudens with staff present to answer questions.

 

Boat Cruise on Lake Sunapee

Departing from Sunapee Harbor, enjoy a narrated boat tour on Lake Sunapee aboard the M/V Mount Sunapee. Your knowledgeable Captain will provide a narration of the history, landmarks and lore of this crystal clear mountain lake known as the "waters of the flying goose." See the magnificent homes that have sprung up around the lake as well as the historic sights of yester year. A highlight for many are the three historic, and still operating, lighthouses. The MV Mount Sunapee II features an open-air top deck and a fully enclosed lower deck.

 

Performance at Weston Playhouse

Enjoy a performance at the Weston Playhouse at Walker Farm, Vermont's oldest professional theatre company.

Plays have been staged in this repurposed Greek Revival church for more than 80 years.

 

Green Mountain Sugar House

Visit the Green Mountain Sugar House and learn about the maple sugaring process and sample their delicious syrup. The red roofed sugar house, just steps away from the water's edge, is where they make everything from maple syrup to mouth-watering maple fudge. It's also a Vermont Country Gift Shop.

 

Vermont Country Store

Take a journey into the general store of yesteryear with The Vermont Country Store. As the purveyors of practical and hard-to-find products, they offer you a host of quality merchandise from around the block and around the world. The Vermont Country Store is a family owned and operated business with roots in over 100 years of Orton family shopkeepers.

 

Scott Covered Bridge

Visit Scott Covered Bridge, the longest wooden span bridge in Vermont. This 277' bridge built in 1870 consists of two king post trusses and a 166' town lattice truss. The latter was the longest wooden span in Vermont; in 1981 a concrete pier was constructed to provide support. An earlier attempt to strengthen the bridge with the addition of a laminated bow arch was not successful.

 

Friesians of Majesty

Friesians of Majesty, located in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains, is a full service breeding and training facility devoted exclusively to maintaining and improving the nobility of the majestic Friesian.

Originated in the Netherlands, the Friesian (Free-zhun) breed of horses is very graceful and nimble for their size. Enjoy a captivating show as the drill team performs to music; dressage freestyle is exhibited; driving is demonstrated; and a majestic Friesian runs at liberty. Afterwards, interact with these beautiful horses in a guided tour of the European style barns.

 

Ice House Museum

Explore Bill Kidder's special collection of automobiles and Americana. The Ice House offers a memorable, hands on experience for vistors to see innumerable working tools, machinery, and a wide variety of items of town interested including an early fire engine, first movie projector, and even the jail cell from Whipple Hall.
