A little Stop Along the way in Franconia

Not far from Franconia Notch is the town of Franconia. A nice, quiet town that holds some wonderful old treasures. I have enjoyed my stop there this summer where I got to see a stone Iron Furnace. One of the last that is still found up here in the North Country. Also, there was an old bridge, taht when you crossed it led to a small trail called Riverstone Beach Trail. It lead along the river bank where you can see different angles of the Stone Iron Furnace. If you enjoy seeing some history while hiking up here in the White Mountains, then this is a great place to stop. Along seeing the furnace, there is a small white building that holds some past treasures.
Here are a few pics:

The sign on the side of the road that lets you know you have arrived.

The sign to follow after the bridge to the trail.

Now, you can't go up to the furnace for it's on private property of the other side of the river. Hope you enjoy your time here in the White Mountains and Happy Hiking :)
