This Hidden New Hampshire Estate Is A True Treasure With Stunning Views

It’s safe to say that most New Hampshirites have not heard of Weeks State Park — and that’s a real shame. Way up north in Lancaster, this state park is built upon the 1912 estate of John Wingate Weeks, a leading conservationist, US Senator, and the Secretary of War for Presidents Harding and Coolidge. The forests and fields of the park are spectacular, and it’s a wonderful place to hike, but the real treasure hiding here is the old mansion itself.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Weeks State Park is located on Route 3 in Lancaster, and it opens for the season with limited hours in mid-May — check the New Hampshire State Parks site for details.
