Description

According to a 1937 CCC Yearbook, the Tamworth NH CCC Camp Co.117 was involved in “complete remodeling of house and barn” at the Huckins Estate. After inquiring with a few local historians, Lois Sweeny of the Ossipee Historical Society located the Estate. Her report back said that “Simon O. Huckins. A walking tour brochure that we are reviving says “This large colonial revival house was the home of Simon O. Huckins, who developed a large logging business, lumber yard and store in Center Ossipee early in the 20th century. Like his neighbors, Huckins was active in church, political and community life.” After a short period, she then provided a photograph of the estate. A big thank you goes to the local historical societies for their assistance and Mrs. Sweeney for visiting the site for the photograph.
