Story Land

On NH Route 16 about halfway between the “Gateway to the White Mountains” town of Conway, New Hampshire and Mount Washington, the highest mountain in the northeastern United States at 6288 feet you will find a small amusement park. Story Land opened in 1954 and is a great example of the type of small family oriented parks that were popular before the mega-parks like Disney and Six Flags took over.

Three generations of my family have enjoyed the park with Alex being the most recent family member to create memories here.

If you have kids and are in the area please stop and enjoy a bit of the past. This is still fun for the entire family and I only touched on some of the attractions.
