Gilmanton Ironworks Shopping
A general store that has everything, including the necessaties for a fishing trip or ice cream for the kids. (or me)
What to buy: A six pack of beer for the boys after they get back from hunting or fishing to watch a game on tv. But you can get ice cream for me and the kids!
What to pay: A little more than most places, but it's a long way to the next store.
Gilmanton Ironworks Local Customs
This place is deep in the country. Many locals are hunters, fishermen, maple sugarers, and even farmers. A past time in the area is riding a 4-wheeler through the hillside trails or in the winter, cross country skiing. In the Fall it's hunting season for deer. My daughter is one of the hunters.
Oh by the way, they passed a BEAR along side of the road one day on their way to work. They were leaving in the early morning hours.
So beware of bears in the area!
Gilmanton Ironworks Warnings and Dangers
This is a true country area and there are bears in those woods! Usually they'll stay away from populated areas, but do come out in the evening and early morning area looking for food. Don't leave any garbage out over night or they'll make your place one of their nightly visits.
Gilmanton Ironworks Tourist Traps
Well it's the only store in town... you'll pay higher prices! Cost me over $5.00 for a half gallon of ice cream for the kids. Good ice cream!!
