First Snow, Part Two The view driving away from the Town Common on Barre Road, Hardwick, MA. “Meadowbrook” was part of a former dairy. A typical colonial home of the late 1700s and early 1800s. Thick, winding stone walls can be viewed throughout the town. A traditional style Cape Cod home on Ridge Road. A view of the Town Common, from the left to right: the First Universalist Church, the Historical Society and the Town Hall. The bell tower of the Town Hall. The Paige Memorial Fountain with fields beyond, which are used for showing sheep during the Hardwick Fair. Paige Memorial Fountain with the Congregational Church and a Coffeehouse behind it. (The Coffeehouse was formerly the general store.) The coffeehouse also includes the Hardwick Post Office. An historical cemetery abuts the Town Hall. Holiday decorations on the First Universalist Church capture the imagination. Share this:EmailLike this:Like Loading... Related Posts architectureliving simplyWinter

Oh, lovely! That is definitely a first snow, which we have yet to get. Do the buildings ring the common?
Yes, most of the buildings do ring the common. The house Meadowbrook is just down the road, however, and special to me as I lived in an apartment on the top floor of the colonial as a young teacher. 😉
Classic New England. What a beautiful place to live.
Beautiful photos. I am so envious–it’s dry and warm here. 🙁
I’m sure the snow will be in your area soon! 😉
I hope so.
These are absolutely lovely. Snow is a rarity for me. The snow really does seem to suit the gorgeous architecture.
Thank you. I lived in this town for many years, so it is special to me.
