New England Architecture, Buildings and Porches

I wanted to write more about the Eagle Mountain House in Jackson, NH, which I visited over the weekend  for a scrapbook retreat.  Here are some more photos that I took. 
The Eagle Mountain House opened in 1879.  It was later expanded to two buildings and a Carriage House, which originally held horse carts and carriages.  The Carriage House is where we did our scrapbooking.  It is now used for weddings and meetings.
In 1915, the main Inn was destroyed by a fire.  It re-opened in 1916, and the 280 foot wrap around porch was added.  I have many pictures of this fabulous porch from this and other scrapbook retreats: 
Can you imagine a 280 foot wrap around porch? Wow. 

One more post to come in this series...

Stunningly beautiful. The scale of this is just incredible. I bet you had a wonderful time. I can see myself out on the fun rocking chairs. Perfect time of year to enjoy the last bit of good weather and rock the time away.
