The Inns and Outs of Historic Moultonborough Neck and Long Island Estates.

There are so many reasons why living in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire is inimitable when compared to many other areas of the country, and why visiting or if so fortunate living here will bring you memories to cherish for a lifetime. An example of one such experience is the recent lecture, lunch, and tour of Moultonborough Neck and Long Island historic inns and estates in Moultonborough, New Hampshire.

Carol and I were proud to be co-sponsors of the Moultonborough Heritage Commission Community Landmarks Tour on Saturday, August 8th, 2010. The Moultonborough Heritage Commission collaborated with the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance and setup a 5 property tour on what turned out to be a spectacularly beautiful Lakes Region summer day. More than 275 people participated in the tour and heard a lecture by noted Moultonborough historian, Cristina Ashjian. Ms. Ashjans eloquent speaking style and her deep understanding of the history of this area was appreciated by all that morning. The inns and estates that we toured were the 1874 Long Island Inn, the 1891 Windermere (Lands End) Estate, the 1907 Winnipesaukee Inn (formerly the Roxmont Poultry Farm) on the grounds of Geneva Point Center, the 1900 Kona Farm (Kona Mansion Inn) and the Swallow Boathouse which served the Kona Farm. During the later part of the 19th century and into the early 20th century all these inns and estates were accessed by steamers that traveled Lake Winnipesaukee delivering not only people but cargo, livestock, and the mail.
