Fred Hanscom General StoreEveryone knows where The Red Parka Pub is located.  Well, it wasn't always a pub.  It started life as a General Store in the 1940's.

Nancy Grant Bartlett shared this information:   In 1952, the building that is now the Red Parka Pub was my parents' general store. In 1965, they built Grant's (on the hill), and Conway Supply (Bun Lucy) rented the "old store". A year later (I think - maybe it was two), my parents built the shopping center and Conway Supply moved there. At that time, my parents rented the building to Dottie and Rick Roderick, and they opened it as the Red Parka Pub. A couple of years later, the Rodericks moved back to Massachusetts. Dewey & Jean Mark and Al & Lois Nelson then leased it from my parents, and eventually Dewey and Jean purchased it. The rest, as they say, is history.... 

         More trivia - the house where Jen Forman lived was the station agent's house, and my great-grandfather, Frank Burnell, (Frank's picture is on the next Page) was the station agent. After Papa (my great-grandfather) died, the house was sold. I don't remember who bought it originally, but it was sold again in the 60's and became Vienna Lodge. The Vienna Lodge sign is also in the Pub at the Parka. My house (since 1968) is just before that.   Click Picture for a large size.

Bartlett Boulder

This old stereoscope slide shows the Bartlett Boulder suspended by four smaller boulders. 

It was once a very visible attraction but in recent years trees grew up and houses were built.  It is now in the backyard of a house opposite the Glen Warehouse. (Allen Road)

I don't know how they feel about folks traipsing about to search it out. 

There is no sign, so that might be a hint they hope you don't find it.... (just my guess)

Storyland in Glen was founded in the early 1950's by Bob Morrell.  That's a whole story in itself, that I will get around to one of these days.  I would suppose this little map is from the very beginning days.

I recall once when my family went there in the mid 1950's and my older brother "Hap", who was about ten years old, was studying the old fire truck they had there and wondered why the siren didn't work.  Being a mechanical sort of kid he noticed that it was simply that the battery was disconnected and within five minutes he had it all connected and had the siren wailing.    The Storyland management was not impressed.  They didn't throw us out though. 

I have a dedicated page for Storyland at this LINK.

This post card was sent in by Diane Lambert and is labeled Cannell's, Glen, N.H.  The cars in this picture suggest a time frame in the 1920's.  The mountains in the background are suggestive of the area around the Intervale scenic vista...but the Cannell's did not move there until 1937.  I think a closer investigation will reveal this is a southwesterly view from their Glen location.
