Monson Center

Reviewed By David F - Southern New Hampshire

Old 1700 ghost town somewhat hidden on the town lines of Milford/Hollis. We have lived in the area since the mid-1070s and never knew it was nearby. Went today and the stone walls and open fields were spectacular. Hard to believe that it was almost lost to homesites. Luckily it was taken over by the town and the Society for NH Forets.Great old home cellars all market with whose home it was. Really nice spot for a long, quiet dog walk. I also found out that handicapped visitors are the only ones allowed to drive into the center rather than walk in. Once in though a walk is necessary for all

Town Hall Theatre

Reviewed By FootTourist

The Wilton Town Hall Theater dates back to the days of vaudeville and silent film. In fact they still regularly showcase the best of the silent era. Basically it is a City Arts Cinema programming in the scenic hills of NH. The programmer rips your ticket and welcomes your input. A historic treasure not to be missed. I travel several times a year from south eastern Massachusetts to experience this venue and it is always worth the trip.

Fantastic winery with a great ambiance. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. LaBelle is pretty big into fruit wines from dry to sweet. No matter your palette, LaBelle will put a smile on your face! The dessert wines are remarkable

Lull Farm

Lull Farm was established by David Orde in 1980. Lull Farm carries a large assortment of their own, locally grown produce, along with a large assortment of gourmet grocery items.

Reviewed By Arch L

This is our fav farm! My son loves the cows, rabbits, chickens and goats. He enjoys feeding them. We love the beautiful flowers and the produce. It's such a great effort to support the local farms even though they may be a bit more pricey. We love the huge weeping willows and apple trees. It's a great place to visit.

We often cycle by this store and it's great that it's open again. They have a more upscale selection that if it were closer I'd use for take out. Very nice that they have a portapotty outside.

Pickety Place

This 18th-century farmhouse was the inspiration for the grandmother's house in Little Red Riding Hood, which today serves as an herb farm and restaurant.

Reviewed By Sherry M - Pepperell, Massachusetts

Pickety Place is the most quaint and charming restaurant and gift shop that I have had the pleasure to dine and shop in for quite awhile. The restaurant menu is the same with two entree'choices for each month accompanied by a lovely dip, homemade Bavarian pretzels and cheese dip and salad. In January I had the pleasure of eating the most delicious red stuffed pepper with a lovely sauce on the side.
After eating we went to the gift shop and purchased a lot of herbs and dip mixes to take home. On the way out the door we bought some hot apple spiced cider for the trip home, also delicious. I can hardly wait to go there again and sample the fare for February. Our waitress was friendly and had worked there for 26 years which is a long time, so the ownership must be amazing to keep staff that long! We went there twice in January, it was so delicious. As we left, snowflakes were beginning to fall and we enjoyed the ambiance of the winter storm that was coming soon. Remember to make reservations because they have seatings every few hours and are not open in the evenings. We went at 12:45.I recommend not going without a reservation unless you want to risk that the seatings will be booked and you will have travelled quite a distance for nothing. It is far off the beaten path, but well worth the trip. You will pass amazing views and stop to look at Mount Monadnock in the distance.

Andres Institute of Art

Reviewed By PAUL C - WESTFORD

Our hiking group hiked through & around the trails of Andres Institute of Art last week. The trails and some of the art sculptures were covered in a foot of snow. Snowshoes were necessary in order for us to navigate around the Institute and enjoy the artist's sculptures. Artists from all over the world create their jewels of art on the property at location of their choosing.

The sculptures are incredible. Beautifully handcrafted stone, metal, granite. Each with a personal subject/purpose on display. It was amazing to see the many different countries represented by the artists.

This is a work in progress that grows each year as the institute attracts more artists every year.

After two hours of snowshoeing we had explored dozens of pieces of art. I'm sure we'll be back again to enjoy a much different hiking experience than our usual climb up a mountain trail.
