Default Shangri-La

Does anyone have any images of the Shangri-La resort they'd be willing to donate (original or electronic) to our historical society?

Default Nice Photos

Nice pictures Dude! Perhaps 5-10 years before I remember driving by it from Meredith to "the city" I recall my ex having a scanner for police/fire dept and it coming over the scanner "this is the big one we've been waiting for" via Weirs Fire Dept and the building being on fire. Oh the memories.

You are correct. It was on the lower section of Brickyard Mountain.

Thumbs up Thumbs Up for McDude!

Laconia Historical, if you havenít already, browse through the History Forum. McDude and a few others have done a wonderful job of compiling some interesting stuff for us to enjoy. Also, take a look over in PhotoPost, there is a treasure trove of postcards and historical photographs. You can do a search on Laconia once in the Historical Photograph category.

I hope that you have read The Gunstock Parish by Adair D. Mulligan. I know it is A History of Gilford, New Hampshire, but it is a must read! It covers a good deal of Laconiaís history, because as you know, Laconia was part of the Gunstock Parish. For those interested in the history of our great lake, this book is a must have. It starts at the very beginning and gives wonderful detail of how this area evolved.

Land is messy and overgrown, from the road. Lower down from the condo building that exists now. I remember driving up there and having a "beverage" or two in the lounge!
