Tamworth NH
 
Welcome to Tamworth! With majestic views of Mt. Chocorua and Mt. Whittier, this preserved NH village is a reminder of a more pastoral time.  It has been a favorite of "rusticating" tourists since just after the Civil War.

Just up from the village center, The Remick Museum offers visitors a chance to  view the working farm of the Tamworth country doctor.

Inside the doctor's office, museum visitors explore the simple tools of two rural physicians, father and son, who provided for villagers over nearly a century.  This is the more modern of the two officess on display.

Barnstormers at the town center is hailed as the oldest continuously running professional summer theater in the state. Francis Grover Cleveland, son of a two-time US president who summered in Tamworth, started the theater in 1931 and supported it until his death in 1995.

On this rock, he founded his church.   In 1792 Rev. Samuel Hidden, fresh from Dartmouth College, was ordained atop this rock about a mile from the village center. Grateful townspeople added the monument in the mid-1800s.

Remembered for his cultured and artistic ways, Rev. Hidden is buried here just a few dozen yards from Ordination Rock. His table-like tomb is balanced on six granite legs.

Save the bears. This sign, seen frequently in the woods around town, speaks to the country environment of this cultured little town. Tamworth is situated between the busy Lakes region and the White Mountain area of NH.

Once the home of an 18th century ship captain from Salem, the cozy Highland House has long been a stopover for Tamworth visitors.  The town's largest accomodation, the Tamworth Inn, located in the village center, is among the state's oldest surviving country inns and includes the only restaurant in town.

A nice touch. Like a scenic picture from a jugsaw puzzle, this white birch fence gate is held togeether with an old horse. Waste not, want not.
