Jeanne Malone:
I would like to buy at least five sets of the “Historic Lakes Region” notecards for Christmas gifts. They are perfect!! I bought the last set at the diner presentation and really would like more.
Also. We now live in the Oscar Lougee home at 147 Pleasant Street. It was built in 1887 and was said to be the most expensive house built in the lakes region at the time. The house across the street was built by Mr. Lougee as a wedding present for his daughter in 1907. The information in the Laconia book written by Warren Huse is incorrect.
Dorothy Duffy:
What an interesting website! It bridges the generations with nary a gap. Who would think of a connection with
U Tube, history games, the “Diner” song, Spider-the short order cook, Je T’aime Laconia, pork pie cookoff and Laconia history but a young Executive Director Jenna Carroll-Plante?
You’re making history fun,

very interesting, I might just look into further on, I was born in Laconia, and mu ancestry came from PQ. I’m just getting to the genealogy of them.
Zip Zamarchi:
any info on the ladies bicycle club would be helpful, and was there a men club also. thank you zip
While we do have a few photographs in our collection of the Ladies Bicycle Club, we don’t have any information gathered on the history of this association. I’d love to find more. There was also a general Lakes Region club I believe. Of course, by the 1890s bicycle clubs became popular for their social and sporting activities.

My grandmother arrived in the US in 1903 with her husband and 5 children. She was the sister of “Rosenblatt” My Mom talked about her first cousin, “Freddy” Rosenblatt. He was the owner of the Lee-Sterling Drug stores in Laconia and Nashua. Can you direct me to any individuals in this family? It would be appreciated.
Elizabeth Miller:
I am looking for anyone who knew Ruby Proctor. She was married to my grandfather and lived on Weirs Blvd. He was a Laconia Police officer and died back in 1945. Please contact me through the Historical Society if you have any information. I am just looking for some copies of pictures of his family, of which I have none. Thank you.
