This adventure led me to a small town in southern New Hampshire. Temple, New Hampshire, like most of New Hampshire, is an old historic town.

Temple is located in Hillsborough County and was initially called “Peterborough Slip.” The town of Temple was incorporated in 1768 in honor of John Temple. John Temple was Lieutenant Governor under Colonial Governor John Wentworth. Temple was son-in-law to James Bowdoin, for whom Bowdoin College is named.

There are so many historic buildings and places to photograph in these small historic towns. This image is of a small building off Route 101, and I felt the picturesque view of the building in the snow was terrific. Temple is a beautiful area.

The University of New Hampshire. Library. Digital Collections has an exciting document available for download The history of Temple, N. H.).
