New Hampshire VI

Founded in 1735 this town was renamed Dunbarton in 1765 after the hometown of a prominent citizen. 22 of the towns slightly more that 2200 perished in Vietnam. These heroes are remembered and honored on this granite rock which sits outside the Town Hall. The grounds consist of a park like setting with tall trees and a lovely gazebo. Once again I am touched by what some small towns do to honor their own. Clearly, with more limited resources that some big place, they have tough decisions to make and they should be proud to have made this one. Dunbarton Center is not far from our last stop in New Boston.
