Edit:




I have resized the first one to make it a little easier to compare. Lets get a few more eyes on them to look them over.

Doesn't that look different to you than the other picture Top? Or is it me?

BTW, do you remember the Pirates Den?

As mentioned before, a few times. Wolfeboro is not a comfortable topic for me to judge on I'll defer to others to offer up more some more and better evidence.

Tis, funny you pointed this out I had my doubts right from the start. Thank you.

Question Forest Road...Could Be...

I don't know when Forest Road got electricity, but the Wolfeboro Airpark got it in 1949.

IF that's Forest Road, a large barn is missing, but may have been built since.

The property would be the old Goodwin Farm. An apple orchard formerly extended far down Forest Road. (There are no more apple trees, as most of the orchard has been sold and converted to residential properties).

It wasn't difficult to imagine how Forest Road would get its name from back then. Even thirty years ago, one would drive through a dark green tube cut through a forest of Maples and White Pine. Lake Winnipesaukee wouldn't be revealed until one reached Carry Beach.

Default Old Wolfeboro

Having spent a lifetime traveling Forest Road, I think this house is the big one on he right side of the road going toward the beach.

See how the old hospital looks wider and not so tall and narrow? That's why I think the other picture is not the hospital. What say you McDude?

In the hospital image there appears to be an extension or addition on the right hand side that I don't see in the other photo.

Exactly what I think too. It is now owned by the Shaws but was owned by the Ericsons for many years before that. It was also that area that was hit hard by the hurricane of '38. The Piper Farm, the Folsom farm etc.
