WOW, in my hometown back yard. Thank you
The Contoocook River is a 71-mile-long river in New Hampshire. It flows from Pool Pond and Contoocook Lake on the Jaffrey/Rindge border to Penacook (just north of Concord), where it empties into the Merrimack River. It is one of only a few rivers in New Hampshire that flow in a predominantly northward direction. Two picturesque covered bridges in Hopkinton and one in Henniker span the Contoocook, as does another on the Hancock-Greenfield line. Residents and tourists have made the Contoocook popular for fishing and whitewater boating.
The name Contoocook came from the Pennacook tribe of Native Americans and means "place of the river near pines". Other variations of the name include the Abenaki meaning "nut trees river" or Natick language meaning "small plantation at the river".
Great picture. Killer cars. Tim
When the Granite State Model T club guys drive along that river --Contoocook means nuts near the river.
You know that is is because of the lug nuts!
Wow! That is the coolest! I like that the second pic is the same view some 90 years later!
