I have always had a love for old and historic buildings. The Livery House in Sunapee Harbor has been keeping time for over 100 years. The building has been used for every single purpose possible. Today a dedicated group of people are working hard to not only maintain the Livery House but again make the building a centerpiece of use for people who call Sunapee home. The old Mill building in Newport, NH has had the opposite care. A long abandoned building hard by the Sugar River. Mother Nature and vandals over time have been working hard to destroy what was once a factory that employed dozens of local people producing goods. It is slowly being swallowed by the landscape with the artistry of the vandals sprayed on its brick walls.
