    I am very sorry that I was not able to make this tour! I love NH history especially of Manchester, Nashua, Waterville Valley.

    I am asking for help from any member who would be so kind as to be willing to provide me with transportation. I certainly will contribute toward the cost of gas. I live at Ledgewood Subdivion off of Candia Rd across from the Goldenrod Restaurant and the Crystal Orchid Flower Shop.

    My only limitation is that my corrected vision is not great enough to allow me a driver's license. However, I don't let that limit me. I enjoy hiking, walking, snow shoeing, x-c skiing, dancing, covered bridges, history, and Manchester! I enjoy meeting new people and making friends.

    Fascinating! Anyone interested in history, architecture or urban planning would love this tour. Aurore, our tour guide, is very knowledgeable and articulate. Tour included some entertaining stories about colorful people and events from Manchester's history.
