There is not much to do in Center Tuftonboro. It has a population of 12. No, I’m just kidding. It’s probably more like 20. I add it to my website because it was my adopted home for the summer and I wanted to share some photos of it. It’s actually a very beautiful place with lots of mountains and a large pond that looks more like a lake called Dan Hole Pond. There is a library, a post office (which also doubles as a general store and video outlet), and a police station. I know they have police because my mom called them to come up and check on me when she didn’t hear from me for a couple of days. (I don’t have a telephone.)
So you’re probably NOT going to come here unless you have a specific reason to. But it is very beautiful and if you’re in the area, it’s a nice drive down 171.
I copied this from Wikipedia since I don't really know much about the town, historically.
"Tuftonboro was the only incorporated place in New Hampshire owned by just one man, John Tufton Mason, for whom the town was named. Mason was heir to the Masonian Claim, the undivided lands of northern New Hampshire, which he sold in 1746 to a group of Portsmouth merchants, thereafter known as the Masonian Proprietors. They disposed of the land via grants to prospective settlers prior to the American Revolution. The town would be granted in 1750 by Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth, and incorporated in 1795.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 129.7 km² (50.1 mi²). 106.5 km² (41.1 mi²) of it is land and 23.2 km² (8.9 mi²) of it (17.85%) is water. Tuftonboro is drained by the Melvin and Beech rivers. Mirror Lake is in the south, and Dan Hole Pond is in the north. The highest point in Tuftonboro is the south peak of Mount Shaw, elevation 2,930 feet (893 meters) above sea level, on the town's northwest boundary.
Tuftonboro has miles of winding back roads, rolling fields, old homesteads and beautiful scenic views of the Ossipee Mountains that surround it.
Melvin Village, a village of Tuftonboro, is a summer vacation spot on Melvin Bay of Lake Winnipesaukee. It has a marina and many lakeside homes and cottages that are for rent. It is also a popular spot for antique shopping. Running through the village is New Hampshire Route 109. Melvin Village is in the western part of Tuftonboro, bordering the town of Moultonborough."
Yes, this is what I get to drive down everyday. At night it is loaded with deer and you can only go about 5mph. Once, I even saw a bear.
I've upated my travelogues regarding Tuftonboro and my time spent there and if you want to read about my hauntings just look below.
