This place is about 40 miles north of me. One of the last of the Grand Hotels which were all over the place 100 years ago here in the mountains of NH. This was the site of the International Monetary Conference in WWII that created the IMF, the World Bank and put us back onto the Gold Standard.
We were playing for a senior citizens' confab.

Hey Les do you have a full bluegrass band,guitar, 5 string banjo, fiddle, mandolin, dobro, and base?boy that would make your band a clasic in New England.

Here's what we've got: fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bass and dobro. That's our "normal" configuration. The mandolin player also plays button accordion and banjo (a little). The fiddle player also plays accordion, bass and autoharp. The guitar player (that's me) also plays pianny at times.
We are not strictly a bluegrass band. We play a lot of old time country stuff, French Canadian tunes and even a little Cajun.

Yeah twas this lowely varmint alright. Not sure if I've impacted tha surface yet or not,truely is cold out here in space in nothin but shirt sleeves'n jeans.

Now if We had a 9 year old Young'un We would'nt need them gurus ta tell Us what ta do,tha 9 year old would be way ahead of em.
You'd think goin inta second childhood would be just as good but somehow it don't seem ta work that'a way lest ways not for Me.{ѣ +_T thats just sompthun I picked up out here in outer space,means I'm ready ta pull tha switch'n take Maw ta bed.

Yall got some pretty country up there Les!

Might be a good place to metal detect, if allowed.

Les    Posted 09-16-2002 at 19:03:42       [Reply]  [No Email]
Don't know if the Mt. Washington Hotel will let ya metal detect on their grounds but wouldn't be surprised if they wouldn't mind. Don't know what you'd find other than some old rusty hardware, if that.
Years ago, people were prospecting the old logging camp sites for bottles, hinges, any other items that might have survived. Bottle dump hunting was big about 25 or 30 years ago around here.

I was thinking if it was the site of an old hotel, there would be old coins in the ground. If detecting is allowed, I'm sure it's been hit.

A guy here used to go to the old city dump in a city 70 miles from here and dig for bottles. He made some good finds.

This old hotel is still standing it was built 100 years ago which is newer than a lot of the others. Most of them around here burned down. A few were torn down. I'm guessing that anything that might be found already has been. You'd have to be very lucky to come across anything of any value.
