Did your ancestors survive being captured and taken to Canada in the 1600s and 1700s in New Hampshire or Maine?  Do you wonder what garrison houses looked like in the 1600s?  Under this pavilion is the Damm family garrison, dating from 1675, the oldest surviving garrison house in New Hampshire.  Click for the photos, stories and genealogy of the garrison. 
Under this wooden pavilion stands the Damm Garrison built in 1675, the oldest wooden garrison house in New Hampshire You can see how well the hewn timber house has survived 100 years under this roof and see the slits...

My blog post yesterday had a few updates, thanks to another genealogy blogger who left a good comment on my post.  This is an interesting case of historical markers, school text books, and state websites being WRONG?  Or not?
