This is the center of Washington, New Hampshire USA. Taken 10/15/11. I am building my dream home in this beautiful town!

From Wikipedia:
According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 47.6 square miles (123.3 km2), of which 45.4 sq mi (117.6 km2) is land and 2.2 sq mi (5.7 km2) is water, comprising 4.62% of the town. Ashuelot Pond is in the southwest, and part of Highland Lake is in the south. Lovewell Mountain, elevation 2,496 feet (761 m) above sea level, is the highest point in town. As Edwin A. Charlton writes in New Hampshire As It Is (1855), the mountain “received its name from Captain John Lovewell, who was accustomed to ascend it for the purpose of discovering the wigwams of the Indians, and who, on one occasion, killed seven Indians near its summit.” The Washington Town Common, elevation 1,507 feet (459 m), is the highest town center in the state. (The town hall of Clarksville is located at a higher elevation—1,980 feet (600 m)—but there is no other village development there.)

Washington is bordered by Goshen to the northwest, Newbury and Bradford to the northeast, Hillsborough and Windsor to the southeast, Stoddard to the south, Marlow to the southwest, and Lempster to the west.

(“Every big city has its little communities, but they don’t have the quaint, small-town charm.” ~ Michael Goss)
