I got the chance to travel to Maine for work recently. It was scenic, driving through back roads, past lakes and rivers. At the end of the day, I realized that my Google Maps app had the “avoid tolls” setting on. No wonder I had wound through so many back roads! New England has its fair share of tolls. It was enjoyable nonetheless.
On my way back in to New Hampshire, I stopped by an office located in one of Manchester’s old mill buildings, located on the east side of the Merrimack River. I had never been inside. What a historic place it was, built back in 1886. Apparently, the Amoskeag Manufacturing Co, no longer in business but who made their home in Manchester, was the biggest cotton textile manufacturer in the world at one point.
Below are some pictures. Enjoy!
