WALPOLE FROM THE AIR — While living in Walpole, researching the opening chapter of his novel HAWAII, James Michener called Walpole “the quintessential New England Village.”

I took this video 19 September 2013 from the top of Walpole’s Town Hall. Probably my favorite stereo views (seen in my book – AS IT WAS…AND STILL IS – WALPOLE, NEW HAMPSHIRE) were taken from the Town House Observatory in 1874/5. Looking at those images, and the video below, not much has changed except the trees

And, this was fun to see

    I remember living in Walpole during and just after WWII. My grandparents lived there as well as my great grandparents along with several uncles, aunts and first cousins. My first memories of life are from Walpole.

    These are wonderful pictures and bring back fond memories as well as one, not so fond memory.

    Thanks to all who made this website possible.

    We moved to Wilton NH after the war was over and that’s where we went to school and grew up. ♡

    I love reading the monthly Clarion! My mother (Mildred Ramsey) used to faithfully save each issue for me. I now live in Goffstown, NH, but I am a devout “Walpolian” and really enjoy keeping up on all of the current events and happenings in Walpole. Thank you for making each issue easily available online now – it has let my Mom to be able to remember one less thing to do (which at her age is a blessing).
