My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

Fuller Gardens, No. Hampton, New Hampshire

Fuller Gardens 
10 Willow Avenue,
North Hampton, NH 03862 

The Fuller Gardens located almost on the Atlantic Coast in North Hampton, New Hampshire is well known for it's superior rose garden. Below are some of the hundred or more photos I took, plus statues. If you love roses, this is a place for you! The Fuller name is well-known in this area, and not too far from the garden is the Fuller Farm where thoroughbred horses might be seen.

If you lived anywhere near Boston or the coast of New Hampshire, you heard of Peter Fuller in the 60s. He was bigger than life, especially when his horse Dancer's Image won the Kentucky Derby. There aren't a lot of horse owners in this area, this area isn't like Kentucky or Virginia, even so, his farm Runnymeade Farm Racing Stables, is a little over a mile from the Atlantic Ocean, in full view from the end of his road. (See map below.)
