The property apparently continues to be available for sale if anyone is looking for what used to be home to Camp Alton from 1937-1992, for 55 wonderful years, with about 300 campers and staff making it their happy summer camp home for every summer. Now, it is almost totally vacant except for the guy who shows up to mow the lawn once/week ...... and a very dead black bear .... the only full time resident .... is a black bear rug .... ugh!

Interesting to see a photo of that cabin room with the bear skin rug on the floor. Could well be that bear was a Route 93 road kill bear, struck by a car, and made into a rug for some one to buy for $5000? If you look closely, it sure looks like tire tracks going down the left side of the dead bear, there ...... ouch ....... poor black bear!
Few things sadder (to me) than the loss of access for many in exchange for the vanity of a few.

I know it was probably a lot of money, but how nice would it have been if Alton could've bought that parcel?

Merrimack, where I live, has done a great job of preserving land for the town--there are three great parks with hiking/hiking trails and a few more smaller areas to recreate, almost all with beautiful water features.
