Living in the area all my life I drive through here quite often yet seldom think much about it. The fact is, Oyster River Landing is a beautiful and historic place. Seeing it as I drive over the bridge and seeing it up close are two different things.
Walking along side the river you can feel the history. Looking around at the old trees and historic homes built in the 1700's you know this was once where the action was. At least as much action as Durham had 200 years ago, which for a small community probably wasn't much.
A charming home that's seen it's share of renovations, I'd say.
This location hasn't been the center of town for many, many years. The center of town now resides where the University of New Hampshire is located, up the road a piece.
Oyster River Landing is far more appealing.

In my next post I'll show you a few more views of the immediate area. Foliage was just about to let go during my visit but the colors were still impressive and brilliant. It was an overcast day but the clouds did nothing to hamper the beauty.
