Fourth of July Means Lakes Region Fun!

By Kathi Caldwell-Hopper If you are vacationing in the Lakes Region during the Fourth of July, you are in for a treat. There are many parades and fireworks, not to mention concerts, barbecues and other fun activities in the area and most are free of charge. Laconia For a good, old-fashioned parade, head to Laconia for the annual Independence Day celebration. The parade forms at Wyatt Park at 3:30 p.m. and wends its way to Opechee Park where vendors and activities will offer family fun. Fireworks end the day with a great display at 10 p.m. The rain date for fireworks is July 5. Two bands will be playing during the Lake Opechee festivities, starting at 5:30 p.m.: Living on a Bad Name, a Bon Jovi tribute band, and the Swift River Jazz Band. Call Laconia Parks and Recreation at 603-524-5046 for updates and information. Weirs Beach is the place to be on July 3 when fireworks light up the sky at midnight. Before the fireworks, there is plenty to do at Weirs Beach in the hours leading up to the fireworks where the M/S Mount Washington boards passengers for daily lake tours. There are many restaurants and shops and arcades, as well as the wonderful beach.

Questions with Kathy Eaton Enjoying Lakes Region Life

1 H

ow long have you lived in NH and what brought you here?

“I’ve lived in the Wolfeboro area all my life. I was born in Massachusetts and my parents moved to the area when I was a baby. I attended Alton and Massachusetts schools. I attended Suffolk University in Boston for journalism and communications, but I always came back to the Lakes Region. I have roots in the area dating to 1893 when my great-grandparents bought property on Jolly Island.”

2

W

hat is your background? You have certainly done it all, from co-owning The Laker at one time to owning and operating the Wolfeboro Trolley and the Millie B boat rides.

“I have a bachelor of science in Journalism and Communications from Suffolk University. After I moved back to Wolfeboro, I worked for the Granite State News as a reporter where I stayed until 1979. I also worked as news director at WASR in Wolfeboro. I started The Laker with Dick Eaton in 1984. I also have now-grown children.”

3

W

hat did you do at The Laker as editor?

“Well, The Laker was started because Dick was looking for a way to bring more tourism and business to Wolfeboro. He saw that there was a need for a summer tourist newspaper. The Laker was an immediate success and there was nothing else like it in the area. I handled all the writing and got into advertising sales as well. Dick focused on the advertising/business side of the paper. It worked well because I have a journalism background and I knew many local people. Dick had run a Wolfeboro business, the Basket Barn, and he understood tourism as well as business. We both grew up spending summers on the lake — Dick moved to Wolfeboro full-time in 1979. He had been in real estate development in the past.”

4 Y

ou know a lot about local tourism. How did you move from newspapers to running a trolley and the Millie B boat?

“Dick and I both have an entrepreneurial spirit. We have lived tourism for years. The Laker was tourism-related and Dick’s work in real estate and as a shop owner also was tourism-related. When we see an idea we love and think it would work for Wolfeboro, we give it consideration. We had the idea that it would be neat to have a boat available for rides in Wolfeboro. I had grown up around boats. The idea was for a nostalgic old boat to offer rides to the public. We started the Millie B in 1998 when we still owned The Laker. We started Molly the Trolley/Wolfeboro Trolley in 1987. Dick saw it as a way to bring people into Wolfeboro and to alleviate some of the heavy summertime traffic issues.”

By Kathi Caldwell-Hopper

Some people never retire and never stop planning and trying new things. Such is the case with Kathy and Dick Eaton, creators and original owners of The Laker. They continue to run a Wolfeboro icon, Molly the Trolley, and to promote the Lakes Region and Wolfeboro as vacation destinations.

hat is this summer’s schedule for the trolley?

“The trolley runs on weekends from Memorial Day to late June and from Labor Day to Columbus Day, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. It runs daily in July and August from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and tours begin on the hour from the Wolfeboro Town Docks and the Railroad Station Information Center.”

hat do you love about the Lakes Region and what keeps you here?

“We have done a lot of traveling over the years and been many places. We have been to the Great Wall of China, to New Zealand, Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the Caribbean; but I have never seen a place as beautiful as the Lakes Region in the many places we have been. That is the reason we stay. Wolfeboro is a wonderful town; after all, who wouldn’t want to live in a Norman Rockwell painting? That is the way I see Wolfeboro.”

hat do you think the Lakes Region will be like 10 years from now?

“I don’t think it will be a lot different. If I look back 20 to 30 years, it is really not much different. I do think we will continue to take better care of the area, to keep it clean and preserve it.”

hat plans are in your future?

“We are always looking for new opportunities. Dick is always thinking and reading and coming up with new ideas. We also plan to keep enjoying the lake and our ever-growing family of children and grandchildren.” To learn more about Wolfeboro Trolley Company and this summer’s dinner-theatre, visit www.wolfeborotrolley.com or call 603-569-1080.

5 Y

ou have sold a few businesses and continued with others. Please talk about that.

“We sold Panoramic Publishing (The Laker and its sister publications, such as Dining Out) to Brad and Fran Lipe in 2001. We sold the Millie B. to the NH Boat Museum in 2011; it’s such a great choice for the boat and it has found a very good home. We own and continue to run the Wolfeboro Trolley Company.”

6 W

here did you get the idea for the trolley and why is it called Molly the Trolley?

“We bought the trolley from a company in Ogunquit ME and it was already called Molly. This is actually the second Molly — we had to replace the first trolley in about 2005.”

Final Call For Registration For Artisans On the Green Sandwich Home Industries has issued its final call for crafters to register for the fifth annual Artisans on the Green art and craft festival. The event will be part of Sandwich’s Old Home Week activities and will take place on Thursday, Aug. 15. Registration forms are available at the SHI Gallery, Yikes, and VynnArt. Artisans also may email a request for a form at pkvanwinkle@ yahoo.com. A gift from the Quimby Trust has allowed the Industries to increase the size of the green in front of its gallery by clearing and landscaping the adjacent lot. “Last year, we had to turn away artisans because we ran out of space,” said Peter Van Winkle, president of the group, “which is frustrating as so many of these artisans have excellent demonstrations, instruction, and classes to offer to the community.” The event which this year may well attract more than 60 artisans, is free to the public and runs from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All artisans are welcome to register. “There are basically two venues for artisans. The first and most popular is getting a space on the green and setting up a mini-studio,” said Ben Adriance, trustee of the Industries. “They rent the space … and pay no commission or other charges.” Sales of items are an important aspect of the event, but the educational component separates this event from so many like it. Virtually all of the artisans bring the tools of their work to the event and can demonstrate and

explain how they create their art. For those with fewer items, the festival erects a “fine arts tent” and provides panels for artisans to hang their work. Artisans who pay for a full, 8’x 4’ panel also pay no commission. The industries provides a cashier so individual artists need not stay. “Our education program during the summer season involves dozens of classes, demonstrations at the gallery, in addition to this massive, one-day program that is the Artisans on the Green festival,” said Sandy Joncas, director of Education. “On the Green, we have hands-on programs for the children, run by the Sandwich Children’s Center, as well as countless demonstrations, ranging from pottery, wood-turning, chair-caning, antique furniture restoration, and rug hooking, just to name a few. In addition, we are fortunate to have VynnArt provide art supply sales for children and adults and set up a small art gallery as well.” “One of the most dramatic changes this year is the registration of the Patricia Carega Gallery,” said Blair Newcomb, a trustee. “Patricia will erect a double-wide tent and feature Sandwich artisans that are in her gallery year-round.” The Sandwich Woman’s Club, as has been its tradition for more than 25 years, will serve lunch on the green from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The club also will hold a drawing which usually takes place around 3 p.m. Parking is free, and adjacent to the festival’s grounds.

Yesteryear NH Music Festival, From An Island To The Mountains By Kathi Caldwell-Hopper It began in a clearing on an island. The place was known as Mud Island but it was renamed Melody Island to describe the concerts that took place there each summer. Imagine such a place, a haven for fine musicians. When those musicians rehearsed, their music spilled over the open water of Lake Winnipesaukee. Of course boaters and other islanders heard the beautiful music and soon gathered offshore to hear the first-class music emanating from Melody Island. Today the New Hampshire Music Festival schedules a series of concerts

each summer, welcoming musicians from around the world. What began on an island has moved onto land and has found places for performances in some of the area’s best music halls and stages. When the musicians first gathered on the island in the 1940s, they had no such aspirations. New York City pianist Hedy Spielter fell in love with the Lakes Region when she visited the area. She may have surprised her city friends when she purchased 60 acres in the area — but not just any 60 acres. It was 60 acres on a Lake Winnipesaukee island then commonly known as Mud Island, near Wolfeboro.

Spielter spent her winters in New York City, coaching professional musicians. Her fellow musical instructor was Jules Epailly. It is unknown what Epailly thought of Mud Island but he was willing to follow Spielter there during the summers. The coarsely named Mud Island was rechristened Melody Island and the land was cleared. Where trees had stood, land was opened for an amphitheatre. Soon rustic cabins were added as well as a place for pianos. Later, the theatre area was enclosed in a shell-like structure. Rows of benches faced the stage. According to the book NH Music Festival First Twelve Years by Marjory

Gane Harkness, musicians who sought out Spielter and Epailly for musical lessons in New York during the winter soon heard about the summer music camp on the Winnipesaukee island. They were lured by the promise of the pastoral and very private island setting. It became a common occurrence to see barges loaded with pianos being transported across the lake to Melody Island. One summer, Spielter discovered a musical group in an unusual setting. A flutist with classical training lived in

Page 13 to drop anchor and spend the evening in the cove off Melody Island for a lakeside concert. The music was great, the atmosphere could not be beat, and the price was free! Word was spreading about the quality of the musicians at the Melody Island camp and soon Leopold Stokowski of the Philadelphia Orchestra visited the island. He stayed 10 days and later sent a contribution to the new Melody Island School of Music. Every day at 2:30 p.m., rehearsals took place on the island and the public was invited to watch and bring their own picnic lunches. A true (and free) gem of musical entertainment had come to the Lakes Region; the only hitch was that anyone who wanted to hear the music had to find a boat ride to the island. One day the musicians were exploring the area and came across the Belknap Recreation Area (today’s Gunstock) in Gilford, and got permission to play there. It would be

• Yesteryear Continued from page 12 nearby Tuftonboro. J. Edward Kurth owned a comfortable summer home in the village. Upon retirement, he was raising poultry on his property but he could not stay away from music. Kurth taught music to local youngsters and brought in professional musicians to accompany them. In the early 1950s, Kurth presented the Melvin Village Pops Orchestra in concerts. For three summers, the orchestra brought together local and professional musicians in concerts and it got youngsters on their way to musical careers. Spielter saw one of the concerts and decided it would be a good way for her musicians to perform in public. On balmy summer evenings, boaters heard the sound of music spilling from Melody Island. Curious, they anchored nearby and soon realized they were witnessing first-class musical concerts. It became a common practice for boats

a great rehearsal space and it was out of the elements if it rained. Soon, local residents caught word of the concerts and came to hear the music. They asked the Melody Island musicians to consider performing regularly at the recreation area. In September 1953, the non-profit New Hampshire Music Festival was born. Spielter must have liked the idea because she was among the original incorporators. A board of directors was formed and it included some local businesspeople with considerable clout and influence. Soon memberships grew with the promise of three concerts per season. The savvy board knew that ticket sales were all-important and, by the second year, a membership drive was underway. The Music Festival was popular but

it needed a permanent home. It was all well and good to hold concerts in the open air on Melody Island or at the Belknap Recreation Area (with one concert taking place at the ski jump and being rained out), but the audiences and musicians grew tired of weathering the iffy New England summer weather. Running the Melody Island concerts proved too expensive for Spielter and, with heavy hearts, those involved in the NH Music Festival and Melody Island School dissolved their partnership. The next season saw the festival concerts moved to Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro. A conductor was a very important part of the festival’s season. Kurth helped in that aspect as well as the business of running the festival.

• Yesteryear Continued from page 13 He was part of the committee that approved the music selections. He brought in Dean Ryan as conductor and it was a wise move. Ryan and his wife, also a musician, added six concerts for children, with three taking place in Wolfeboro and three in Gilford. The children’s

concerts brought classical music to New Hampshire children and their parents and showed local residents that this type of music could appeal to anyone. In 1958, there were festival concerts in Plymouth, Bethlehem, Weirs Beach, and Wolfeboro and also in the Gilford area. When the Inter-Lakes High School was completed in Meredith, concerts also took place at that new

facility. Always looking to try new things, Ryan experimented with a pops concert at Weirs Beach, using light music such as Strauss. The audience was seated at tables and the open-air concert idea was popular. The musicians for the festival were housed around the Lakes Region and eventually they found a summer home at the former Garnet Inn in Center Harbor. The inn had enough space for rehearsals and also for festival offices. The building was renamed Festival House. In 1960, Minneapolis musician Thomas Nee traveled to the festival .COM and took over as conductor. His resume was impressive and the little musical festival orchestra members in the Lakes Region may have wondered

if they were up to the task of playing under such a famed conductor. The orchestra, with the addition of some fine musicians of Knee’s acquaintance, indeed proved to be up to the task. Nee’s wife, a dancer, taught dance classes for children and new summer courses in music were added. Over the years, the Festival Chorus grew and improved and the Festival String Quartet was born in 1960. The NH Music Festival has continued to grow with each decade. Headquarters were moved to various Lakes Region locations, as well as performance spaces. The concerts that started on an island in the 1940s grew over the years and struggled but ultimately succeeded. For information on this year’s concerts, visit www.nhmf. org.

Emerald Ash Borer Agrilus planipennis (EAB) Affected Species

All North American ash species including White, Black and Green.

Symptoms/Damage

Larvae bore through the bark and into the cambium feeding on the phloem, creating long serpentine galleries causing critical internal damage. The following spring the 1/2 inch adults exit the tree leaving a 3-4mm D shaped hole. EAB can be present in a tree for two years without signs of decline.

Treatment

Best to treat preventatively with products applied to the soil or bark.

Treatment Timing

Preventative treatments should begin early or through the growing season. Curative, cambial injected treatments may be effective if caught early. T r e e

A Life Well Lived: Bob Montana Book To Be Published By Kathi Caldwell-Hopper Bob Montana, creator of the Archie comic strip — one of the most popular comics ever to run in newspapers far and wide — was a fascinating person. He gave back to the community in which he lived (Meredith) and he was far ahead of his time in progressive projects such as organic gardening. “I never knew he lived here!” is the comment Carol Anderson heard often as she interviewed people and gathered material on her soon-to-be-published book about Bob Montana. She said everyone has seen the Archie comics but many do not realize the creator and artist who drew the comic strip lived for years in Meredith. Anderson, the author of The History of Gunstock, is putting the finishing touches on her book about Bob Montana. Thus, she has lived and breathed the life

of Montana for many months and, when she speaks of him, she lights up. “He contributed a lot to the world,” she says. “I wanted the book to celebrate Montana the man, not just his work as an artist. He volunteered his time and talents to many causes, both local and national.” Anderson became aware of Bob Montana while researching the Gunstock book. Like many people, she knew he was a Lakes Region resident but she did not know a lot else about him. When she found a comic he did on Gunstock, she realized the talent, the humor, and the way Montana could seamlessly work local scenes and people into the Archie comic strip. “That is how a book usually starts,” she says. “I see something and it sparks an idea. I might see an article or a

It just grows from there.” She began to dream about doing a book on Montana and her publishers at the History Press liked the idea. But first, she approached Montana’s daughter, Lynn, who still lives in the area.

Page 31 “Lynn loved the idea of a book on her father and so did her siblings [Bob and Peg Montana had four children]. They were thrilled that someone wanted to write about their Dad’s life,” Anderson recalls. In researching the artist, Anderson soon realized there is not much out there on Montana. The basic facts she found were that he was born in 1920 and his father was, at the time, known as the world’s greatest banjo player. Montana’s

father was a performer on the vaudeville circuit and his family accompanied him on the road. The family summered at a farm they owned in Meredith and later opened Montana’s Restaurant in the town. The Great Depression made it difficult to keep the restaurant going and vaudeville had fallen out of popularity. The Montana family moved to Boston and Bob’s parents opened a restaurant there, which became a going concern. “His father died of heart problems when

Bob was only a teenager and it was difficult. But Bob was talented and he went on to attend art school and then went to New York City to work for a comic strip company.” Because the details of how the comic strip came about are in the book, Anderson says that she would rather hold off on that pertinent information.

“You can read about it in the book, which is titled The New England Life of Cartoonist Bob Montana:  Beyond the Archie Comic Strip. (She did share that most people have no idea that Montana first drew the Archie comic strip when he was at Lake Waukewan.) Clearly, Montana always loved Meredith and the Lakes Region and had fond memories of his youthful years spent in the area. When he married (his wife, Peg, according to Anderson, was a model-beautiful woman), the artist purchased a farm in Meredith where he began married life. “He was very active locally and most people around Meredith knew Bob,” Anderson goes on to say. “He was approachable, just one of the locals, but people still speak of how talented he was and how much he gave back to the area.” Anderson says that what she learned of Montana’s energy amazed her. “He was almost superhuman. He was always busy and was a very highly respected member of the Meredith community. He worked to do what was right and to contribute and he never refused, as far as I can see, to help a good cause. For example, he invited the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to visit his studio. He did USO appearances often. He entertained the troops and he was constantly in motion. “I saw that the humor in his comic strips was brilliant. Bob did both the drawings and the writing for the Archie comics. Today, cartoonists have teams to

produce the strips. He had an assistant for inking, but he drew the comics and did the writing himself. He was a genius but a very down-to-earth person. The people that knew him said Bob was untouched and not affected by fame.” One person Anderson interviewed for her book is now grown, but recalls being a youth in Meredith in the 1960s. He speaks glowingly of growing up in the town where Bob Montana lived. The artist encouraged youths and he was known to support causes that benefited young people. “Bob was very likeable, but he wouldn’t have liked to be treated like a celebrity. He was just ‘Bob’ around town. On the other hand, he realized he had a status and his endorsement meant a lot. He would do drawings for nothing if it helped someone or something he believed in,” Anderson added. Perhaps because he grew up traveling the vaudeville circuit with his performing father, Bob loved theatre and film. He acted in local plays and made some films that were shot in the Meredith area. By the 1970s, Bob was semi-retired and was always ready to try new things. That was when he got interested in organic gardening, putting him ahead of his time. Bob and Peg were living and enjoying life in Meredith on their farm and, as an artist, Montana was always creating something. Sadly, he did not enjoy a long retirement and died in January 1975. Anderson’s fondness for Montana

• Bob Montana Continued from page 32 shows when she speaks with emotion about the day the artist was out crosscountry skiing on his property with his family and died of a heart attack. He was just 54-years-old and the community and the world were stunned at the news of his passing. “He packed so much into those 54 years,” Anderson asserts. “And he was a pleasant person, always with a joke for others and so happy to be helping out however he could.” Meeting and getting to know Lynn Montana gave Anderson a lot of helpful background on the artist. It also changed the slant of her book over time. No longer a “history of Bob Montana’s work” it became a deeply felt story about

a human being, a wonderful person Anderson is sad she never got to meet. “I leaned on Lynn Montana a lot when I was researching and then writing the book on her father. She was so helpful with correct dates and insight on what Bob was thinking and how they lived. She has been incredibly helpful and I can’t thank her enough. She helped it come together; she recently looked over all the images I am using and tweaked things as needed,” Anderson explained. “In truth, the history of Bob Montana, like any historical story, has already been written by the life he led. I let the information lead me. It was my job to uncover the story. You have to report the facts as they are when you are writing historically. But, beyond the facts, what I found out about Bob was so positive that I knew my book had to be about his life

and his contributions because what he did and what he was matters so much.” If the popularity of Anderson’s Gunstock book is anything to go by, the Montana book will be a hit as well. She says the Gunstock book’s popularity has “far exceeded what I ever thought. I still get invited to speak to local groups about the book and people all across the country still email me about enjoying the book. I had no idea Gunstock was so beloved all across the United States!” The Montana book will be out in the fall (distribution date will most likely be in September or October). Anderson can surely expect to have speaking invitations come fast and furious once the book hits newsstands. People will find the book on a local celebrity and artist a fascinating look at the life of a very real person.

“Bruce Heald, a writer, teacher, and historian, did the forward for the book. He was a good friend of Bob’s and he even appeared in one of the comic strips. He said it was difficult to put into words all that his friend, Bob, meant to him but his forward is a great introduction to the book.” If Anderson has any regrets about the Montana book and all she learned about the artist, it is that she never got to meet him. “I am heartbroken I never got to meet Bob. I would give anything to have lived in Meredith as a kid, and to have met Bob. I know he would have influenced me. It must have been magical to grow up in the 1940s to 1960s with Bob in town.” More than Bob’s fame and successes, that endorsement is a fitting tribute to a life well lived.

Solo Exhibits At Sandwich Gallery C.C. White and Alston Conley will open two solo exhibits on Saturday, June 29, at Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery in Sandwich. There will be refreshments from 5 to 7 p.m. Both Conley and White work in mixed media. Each explores color and its intensity and both use collage in their work. At that point, the similarities end. White’s exhibit is a retrospective of her works in intriguing media, interesting compositions, and color

that dances across her paper. Conley’s new work is a journey into silhouettes and intense color. His subject is trees that are sometimes painted and sometimes cut into a collage and then applied to the paper Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery is located at 69 Maple Street in Center Sandwich.

The Great Wall of Sandwich & The Statue of Niobe Article and Photos by Christine H. Randall Over the past several months, I’ve become a big fan of the hobby called

geocaching, which is basically a game of outdoor treasure hunting for adults using a GPS unit to find a hidden cache (not usually filled with anything of real value, I might add). Aside from the

thrill of the hunt, one of the best things about geocaching is that it brings you to some places that you might not have otherwise known about, and this happened to me recently when I had time to go on a brief geocaching adventure in Sandwich. The cache is hidden at Little Pond on Little Pond Road, which is located off Route 109 just outside of Center

Sandwich. As I drove down Little Pond Road toward the pond, I passed a long, wide wall about 10 feet wide and about five or six feet high that stretched for at least a third of a mile alongside the road before disappearing back into the woods. The wall is anchored on

June 24, 2013 • Great Wall Continued from page 36 one end by a 10-foot-high pedestal holding a beautiful, seven-foot-high statue of a female figure that appears to be trying to protectively hold a child. The statue looks like it is made out of white marble, and it also looks like something you might typically find in a museum in a wing featuring classical Greek mythology, not standing on a wall in Sandwich! The expanse of the wall and the grandeur of the statue had me halfexpecting to see a huge mansion on the property, but the building that is actually on the site, at 24 Little Pond Road, looks more like a modest-sized private residence with no-trespassing signs to reinforce the fact that it is not property that is freely open to the public. Thinking that there must be an interesting story behind the wall and statue, I stopped to take some pictures and resolved to find out more — after I located the geocache down at the pond, of course (which I managed to do)! I have learned that if you want to find out anything of a historical nature in Sandwich, the best place to start is the Sandwich Historical Society. If the people working there don’t have the answers to your questions, they are happy to direct you to people who do. In this case, I found out that there is a great deal of fascinating information about the wall, the statue, and the man responsible for both. The wall, interestingly enough, is known locally as “The Great Wall of Sandwich.” The Great Wall of Sandwich? I think it’s a safe assumption that most people have heard of the Great Wall of China — but how many know about the Great Wall of Sandwich? According to the Sandwich Historical Society, the wall was built by a 19th century industrialist and Sandwich native named Isaac Adams in the late 1800s. On the Historical Society’s website, a description of the wall states, “The Great Wall is a massive structure, that is generally shoulder high and 10 feet wide. Isaac Adams had it constructed between 1874-1875 by approximately eighty men working under the supervision of two master masons: Jacob Roberts of East Sandwich, who was the chief, and Curt Prime of Moultonborough, his assistant. The Great Wall has several disconnected branches, and in the aggregate, extends over a mile. Its core structure is trapezoid shaped and encloses almost twenty acres. During the period 2004-2009, dense vegetation was cleared away and the

Page 37 Great Wall was repaired. Visitors now can easily walk around the Great Wall at their leisure.”  The story of Isaac Adams seems to be a typical tale of “local boy leaves town and makes good, returning to home town a rich man” — but with a slight twist. Isaac Adams was apparently not well-liked by his neighbors, both when he left town and after his triumphant return. According to the Historical Society’s website, “When he was nineteen, Adams decided to leave Sandwich and resettle in Boston, where there were greater economic opportunities. Adams asked his neighbors to lend him the coach fare, which he would repay once he got a job in Boston. His neighbors refused this request, telling him that he was of “no account” and they would never see him or their money again.   “Bristling at this rebuke, Adams swore that he would work his way to Boston, become successful, and return to Sandwich rich enough to buy any land he wanted. Adams kept his vow. After inventing the steampowered press that revolutionized printing, he returned to Sandwich a multimillionaire. He bought up many farms in the Sandwich Lower Corner neighborhood and proceeded to knock down all their buildings. Some of the feathered split granite that made up those buildings’ foundations found their way into the Great Wall Adams constructed in 1874-1875.” Adams didn’t stop there. On pedestals in various locations in his estate, Adams placed three large statues that he apparently had picked up in his travels in Italy. The statues were made of zinc that had been painted white to resemble marble. The three statues represented characters from Greek and Roman mythology, including the twin deities Apollo (god of the sun) and Artemis (goddess of the hunt), and a lesser known queen of ancient Thebes named Niobe. The statue on the wall at 24 Little Pond Road that I saw is that of Niobe. In Greek mythology, Niobe was the queen of ancient Thebes who had 14 children: seven daughters and seven sons. She was so excessively proud of her children that she offended the goddess Leto, who only had two children, the twins Apollo and Artemis (known as Diana in the Roman version). Leto sent Apollo and Artemis/Diana to Thebes to kill all of Niobe’s children, and some versions of the myth say Niobe’s husband then committed suicide when he heard the news. The gods subsequently turned Niobe into a stone pillar, and she is shown weeping for eternity for her lost family. The statue

t i s Vi

also shows Niobe holding one of her daughters to her after the onslaught. So why did Adams select these particular statues of both the tormented and the tormentors to adorn his estate? The article from the Historical Society suggests the following reason: “Perhaps this was Adams’ way of likening himself to the ancient Greek gods and saying to the citizens of Sandwich, ‘You were wrong to mock me as a “no-account youth.” In fact, you should look up to me with great deference because I have far more power and wealth than any of you could ever hope for.’ Rather than punishing his neighbors by mowing them down with arrows, like Apollo and Diana in the myth, Adams merely bought and destroyed their homes, his symbolic equivalent. He may have placed the statues of Niobe, Apollo and Diana along the Great Wall, itself an emblem of his power and wealth, to constantly remind townsfolk of his message.” Unsubstantiated stories also suggest that Adams built the wall wide enough that he would be able to drive his carriage along the top of it in front of his neighbors, which would probably serve to further infuriate them. Although Adams himself resided on a portion of his estate now known as Chestnut Manor, in 1875 he added another new building to his property when he purchased a building on Wentworth Hill (now Route 109) and

relocated it to 24 Little Pond Road. The building, known as Adams Hall, was built in 1848 and once housed a dance hall on the second floor, with artisan shops on the first floor. Many years later, that building, along with the 20 acres enclosed by the Great Wall, were subdivided from the rest of the property. Boone and Margaret Porter (who interestingly enough, live in a home close by, once known as the Weed Estate in Adams’ time and, in later years, was once owned by actor Claude Rains) purchased that part of Adams’ estate in 2004. The wall and the statue of Niobe apparently were big tourist attractions until 1941 when a storm toppled the statue from its pedestal, leaving it shattered into almost 200 pieces. The pieces, some very large and others very small, were picked up and stored, and the whereabouts of the pieces was subsequently forgotten for more than 60 years. One of the other two statues, Diana, was sold at an estate auction at some point, and the fate of the statue of Apollo is unknown. When Boone and Margaret Porter purchased the property at 24 Little Pond Road in 2004, they did so with a provision that they would own the rights to the statue of Niobe if it could be found. “We were aware that the statue existed, due to photos dating from the 1880s or 1890s that we have in our home that show two little girls standing in front of the statue,” explained Boone. “Just nine months

• Great Wall Continued from page 37 after we closed on the property at 24 Little Pond Road, a tenant at Chestnut Manor (formerly the Adams Estate) discovered the pieces of the statue in a barn on the property, buried under a pile of manure. This might have actually saved the statue, by at least keeping all of the pieces together.” Boone spent the next few years trying to have the statue repaired. “We consulted with experts in Rhode Island and New York, but the experts in New York said that the damage was so great that it would not be cost-effective to restore it and they suggested that we sell the pieces for scrap, while our expert in Rhode Island quoted a price of a quarter of a million dollars to do

the work.” But the Porters then lucked out because, in 2011, one of their neighbors who happens to be a metal artisan came up with a plan to restore the statue at a price that was agreeable to both parties. The neighbor, Adam Nudd-Homeyer, spent close to a year working to restore the statue. “It took about 400 hours to reassemble all the pieces,” said Nudd-Homeyer. “There were between 150 and 200 pieces when it was all said and done, and a small portion had to be made from scratch. The pieces ranged in size from that of a quarter up to about the size of a small child. Most were either broken/cracked, severely distorted from impact, or both. I repaired all the major cracks, and used pressure and/or temperature to reshape the distortions

as much as possible. I reassembled it in much the same manner as it was originally (it is made of tiles that stack like bricks), using solder and a torch.” The reassembled statue of Niobe was unveiled to the public at a small ceremony at 24 Little Pond Road on May 12, 2012. Nudd-Homeyer, who currently is the director of the Sandwich Historical Society, said he hopes that, someday, the statues of Diana and Apollo can be also located and returned to the Great Wall of Sandwich, and he offered some thoughts on what he believes drove Isaac Adams to build the wall. “At the end of the day, I personally think that he built the sections of the wall — and placed the statue of Niobe

— on the sections most important for him to “claim” upon his grand return to Sandwich. That is, the sections facing the Weed Estate (Niobe faces directly at their main house, now owned by the Porters), as well as along the grand promenade up the hill into Lower Corner. This was at one point the main route into town from Moultonborough, and would have presented an imposing sight. “It is open to conjecture just whom he meant specifically to target, but a local group of people refused to help Adams out of Sandwich to Boston when he was an enterprising young man, and he vowed to return a wealthy man and buy

I personally feel that the Weed family may have been the major, or at least one, target of his “revenge”. The bullet marks in Niobe’s upper arm, which we left in place, attest that someone from the direction of the Weed place may have taken the gesture personally, as well.” The statue of Niobe is easily viewed from the road but, since the property

North Shore Acappella To Perform July 5 North Shore Acappella will bring its blend of harmony, rhythm, and tempo to the Inn on Main, 200 North Main Street, Wolfeboro, on Friday, July 5. Covering songs from the 1940s through today, the group has been performing throughout New England for more than 30 years. Its performance at 7:30 p.m. on the fifth will be presented by the Great Waters Music Festival as part of its Second Stage Series. Every performance by North Shore Acappella is arranged in a way that showcases each singer in a lead role, a trait that very few a cappella groups in the country can claim. The group — Tommy Duarte, Paul Lopes, Jimmy Martin, Vinny Straccia, and Guy Chiapponi —came together in 1979 when Straccia, Chiapponi, and Bob Crowley ended several years

of appearing with other groups. They later were joined by Jimmy Martin who previously sang with the rhythm and blues band World Premier; and Tom Duarte who replaced Crowley.  In 1991, North Shore Acappella won the National Harmony Sweepstakes in San Rafael CA, defeating six other top finalists from across the country.  In 2011, North Shore Acappella was featured on NBC’s The Sing Off, and the group has appeared as the opening act for The Temptations, The Platters, Ben E. King, Johnny Maestro, Al Jarreau, Roberta Flack, Frankie Valli, and Gene Pitney. Available now at the Great Waters office at 15 Varney Road in Wolfeboro, tickets also are available by calling 603-569-7710 or online at www. greatwaters.org.

at 24 Little Pond Road is private, interested visitors need to contact the Boones for permission to tour the milelong wall. To see the statue and the Great Wall of Sandwich, take Route 109 out of Center Sandwich toward Moultonborough, and you will see Little Pond Road branching off to the left. The property is located very close to the intersection with Route 109.

coffee, baked goods, fresh-caught New Hampshire seafood, and an array of local meats and cheeses, there will be prepared food and meals and natural body care products. The market also will have live music from local musicians, an information table supporting local producers and businesses, and occasional guest vendors. Joan O’Connor said, “I’m really excited

to support the Lakes Region, residents, foodies, and visitors by bringing together the best farmers and natural, wholesome food producers of New Hampshire.” The market has more than 34 vendors, many of whom have migrated from the winter market, and many new growers and producers.

Good Medicine for Your Vacation By Kathi Caldwell-Hopper Everyone loves vacation time. Whether it’s boating, hiking, biking or other outdoor activities, the Lakes Region is brimming with vacation-time fun. Although no one plans for it, or desires it, now and then accidents do happen while on vacation. And occasionally, children come down with a cold or earache and cannot wait until returning home to get medical treatment. Luckily for those vacationing in the Lakes Region, there are plenty of options for medical care in a large or small emergency. Lakes Region General Hospital, located on Highland Street in Laconia, has a Fast Track service adjacent to the Emergency Room to

handle minor injuries. Convenience Care at LRGH opened last year, offering yet another option to those who require medical care. It is fully staffed and visitors can enter through the main hospital entrance in the redesigned and enlarged hospital. Those who

use the Fast Track or Convenience Care options are assured that, if they need a higher level of care, they can

get it within the same facility. For Lakes Region General Hospital information, call 603-524-3211. When in the Wolfeboro area, medical care is offered at Huggins Hospital, located at 240 South Main Street. The hospital completed a major renovation in 2010, which has revamped the facility. Huggins offers 24-hour, sevenday-a-week medical care in its emergency department, which is used often by tourists for the care of such things as ear infections and • Vacation Continued on page 42

near the White Mountains, Speare Memorial Hospital, located on Highland Street, has a fully staffed emergency room providing 24-hour emergency care for nearly 20,000 patients every year. Patients can walk in and be seen for a multitude of medical issues. A physician is on staff 24-hours a day, as well as a midlevel provider —nurse practitioner or physician assistant—during peak hours. Call 536-1120. The Emergency Department at Speare works closely with local emergency medical service providers such as the DartmouthHitchcock Air Response Team (DHART) for critical care transport. A helipad is located adjacent to the hospital, just outside the Emergency Department entrance. How can a visitor to the area determine when a trip to an emergency room or convenience care department is necessary? For

obvious issues, such as sprains or fractures, the emergency room is the best bet if your primary medical care is far away. Should a visitor suspect a heart attack, it’s vital to get to the nearest emergency room; better yet, one should call 911 in such an emergency. Local hospital facilities have the equipment necessary to check for heart problems, as well as for minor issues such as sprains and fractures. Even minor but annoying problems such as a case of poison ivy can and should be attended to sooner rather than later and emergency rooms are good places for patients with poison ivy, tick removal and other issues. The old adage of it being better to be safe than sorry should be the norm when you have a medical problem while spending time in the Lakes Region. It is the best possible medicine for a great vacation.

From College to Shopping Center By Kathi Caldwell-Hopper Center Harbor in the early 1960s was a different place from the charming and specialty shop village of today. The 1960s was a time of free-spirited young people, rock music, and a backto-nature lifestyle. With that in mind, the close-knit Belknap College that encompassed a great deal of downtown Center Harbor fit right into the 1960s youth culture. Many young people were looking for a college community that allowed them to express their thoughts and to live and study peacefully in a quiet setting. The college became all that and more to the students who attended the institution. Some of the buildings that housed the college are still in use today, no longer as dorms and classrooms but now as various shops and businesses. (The college closed in the early 1970s.) Dr. Royal M. Frye and Dr. Virginia Brigham founded Belknap College in 1963. They searched for an ideal location for the college and found it in lovely Center Harbor, on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. Today the idea of starting a college might seem daunting but, at the time, there was a booming population of young people headed off to gain a higher education. The Baby Boom meant more students were entering college and, with this in mind, Frye and Brigham thought their new college would succeed, although they had no alumni base from which to

fund the institution. Belknap College opened in 1963 with a good faculty and a campus on the former Tufts estate and in Center Harbor village. Dedicated and financially generous trustees funded the college’s opening. The first year, the enrollment was less than 200 students but it soon swelled to about 600 young people. Whether the formerly sleepy village was ready for the influx of students is uncertain, but it seemed Center Harbor was changing. Needing housing for the large number of students, the college trustees found a lot of old buildings of large size in Center Harbor that would suffice. The former four-story Garnet Inn became a men’s dormitory (the building was later demolished) and the Coe House (today Lavinia’s, a fine dining establishment) became a women’s residence. Other downtown buildings were converted into dormitories, and some were named for trustees, such as the Rains House, named for actor Claude Rains whose daughter was on the Belknap College faculty, and local notable Edward Dane of Center Harbor. Today’s EM Heath’s property (grocery store) was once the site of dorms. A college cafeteria also was located in downtown Center Harbor. Classrooms and offices were located in a large brick house known as Founder’s Hall, on Route 25B at the former Tufts estate. (Later the property was the location at various times for an

inn, a restaurant, and a music festival office.) The remote and wooded setting of Founder’s Hall probably appealed to the students and teachers. Everything they needed for classes and recreation was located on the former country estate and the students were bused between

Page 43

their downtown Center Harbor dorms and the Route 25B classrooms. There was plenty of room for science class laboratories, and barns

and outbuildings of the estate were turned into a library and bookstore. It is interesting to note that the barn and outbuildings housed the college’s very own student firefighting squad. The squad received a vintage truck from Center Harbor and training from the Laconia Fire Department. Belknap College was known for its meteorology program and many remember the astronomy observatory

built on a Center Harbor hilltop. The college seemed to have it all for a time: baseball, basketball, skiing, and crew, and a student newspaper, The Belknapian. Parents who sent their children to Belknap College could be assured that the students would get a well-rounded course of liberal arts classes leading to a bachelor of arts degree. Those interested in the sciences could take medical technology courses

• College Continued from page 44 leading to an associate’s degree. One might assume there was little social life for college students in such a small town but students socialized among themselves and enjoyed lake recreation. One popular gathering spot was Nichols Variety Store, with Minnie Nichols a favorite of college students. (Minnie ran the store with her husband, Clarence.) Today the building still stands and has housed eateries and specialty shops over the years. Belknap College was forced to close in 1974 due to financial considerations.

The many buildings that had housed dorms, a bookstore, offices, classrooms, and more for a time sat empty. It probably took the town time to adjust to the lack of income from the students who shopped in the stores and ate at the restaurants in the area. Those who once attended the college often return for reunions. They marvel that some of the buildings still stand, although many have been torn down. Center Harbor’s historic village district, where they lived and studied, is now a place beloved by tourists and locals alike, with specialty shops and eateries.
