The Washington Boulder was on the path between Conway and North Conway Strip over Pine Hill. The boulder was quite an attraction and was a perfect afternoon hike. The boulder was demolished at the turn of the century. Part of this granite was used as the foundation at the Conway Public Library in 1900.

North Conway's "Strip"
circa 1943.
This is looking north from about Burger King, at what is now Yield House. Wow! This is a great reminder of how our commercial area once looked.

  This is a picture is of the Eastman-Sullivan House circa 1860-65.

 The house along with a barn was located across the street from Richard G. Packer Art Galley on the strip. Christie's Variety (Now 7-11), Chelsea's Roadhouse, Club Moulan Rouge, Now The Club have occupied where the old house and barn stood.
  It has been said this could be the earliest photograph of the "Strip" in N. Conway. Please let us know if you have an earlier one.

The house was razed in 1987 but the barn as seen pictured was saved and moved to the north side of MacDonald's Restaurant on Rt 16 North Conway. The Eastman Sullivan barn as seen here sat empty for quite a few years and was demolished in 2005. Hampton Inn suites now occupies its place on the strip.
