Dummer, NH

Dummer sits on Route 16, about ten miles north of Berlin.

Dummer is famous for "Dummer's War" (1722-1725), which pitted New Englanders against the alliance forged between the Abenaki Indians and the French in Canada. The outcome of this conflict was the New Englanders won control of Maine and Nova Scotia. The 1940 film, Northwest Passage portrays their ordeal.

The town of Dummer is pivotal in the Granite Reliable Power (GRP) wind turbine project, which involves the construction of 33 power generating towers. Interestingly, much of the work requires the ground to be frozen. This lessens the environmental impact to trees and plants that might be agitated from loose soil. The controversial project is praised by some as providing new employment in the area, criticized by others for marring the landscape.

The Pontook Reservoir sits on the Androscoggin River, and nearby areas are favorites of white water rafters and kayakers.

Field Trail magazine calls Dummer home. Field Trail was recently acquired by The Pointing Dog Journal. If haven't guessed already, these publications are for those who fancy or employ hunting dogs.

Dining is limited in Dummer, so head a few minutes south to Berlin.

The Great Northern Moose Lodge, 1442 Route 16, is a rustic and charming inn that offers things like bonfires and s'more making. The innkeepers keep a library of books on the Great North Woods area, so guests can prepare and investigate before their mushing, skiing or snowshoeing adventures in the area.

There are not many businesses in Dummer, however, that may be exactly the town's appeal.
