Main Street Talks: Old Sunapee Photos

The Sunapee Historical Society is looking to put together a summer event, a happening! It’s called “Main Street Talks.” An organizing meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 24 at the Sunapee Methodist Church, Lower Main Street at 7 p.m. All interested are invited to attend.

SHS President Ron Garceau sent us these photos showing some of the people who lived and worked along Main Street in Sunapee.

The idea is to share the stories and lives of these and other Sunapee historical figures in the “Main Street Talks” tour.
