Right on the Vermont/New Hampshire border is an odd little spot. In the middle of the woods, on a beautiful walking trail, the ruins of a castle still remain. This is in West Chesterfield, New Hampshire and the building was Madame Sherri’s Castle. Madame Sherri was a Music Hall Singer in Paris in the early 1900’s […]
We have a long day ahead of us. Many places to go and some special people to see. Our first stop is at Mount Auburn Cemetery. The morning was wet and cool but we have wanted to visit this place for quite awhile.
The cemetery truly is beautifully landscaped and there are so many cool stones and statues. Unfortunately our time was limited and we could only hit a few of the sites.
The Mary Baker Eddy Monument is impressive and a stand out for me (I have never felt like arguing with a memorials inscription quite like this).
Another stand out is the Bigelow Chapel:
and across the road facing the chapel is a sphinx.
Unfortunately we had scheduled plans for the rest of the day but I hope we get a chance to spend a full day exploring this awesome cemetery.
Well, at least we’re on the right track…
Now that the weather is warming up we are going to be hitting the road again. Other travelers beware!

We have visited Dog Town several times this year and it is an awesome place. There is the old ghost town, there are great stories of eccentric towns folk and giant boulders with bizarre motto that have been carved into them. Weirdness trifecta SCORE!
