Sometimes it takes a strong imagination to conjure up the past. Drive into Wilmot Center and it takes no imagination at all. The Town Hall, Wilmot Public Library and First Congregational Church stands as picture perfect as a Hollywood set ó a neat row of white buildings with New England heritage.

  • The Wilmot Farmers' Market, open July to October, is a great place to pick up fresh veggies, locally made goods, even lunch!
  • Tired of the same old carpet? Stop in Floorcraft on Route 11 and select from a wide variety of flooring options.

Take a drive and see the town's historical churches. The First Congregational Church at Wilmot Center was built in 1858. Up until 1957, when lightning hit the steeple, the First Union Meeting House was 100 yards away. The granite steps are all that remain today. The North Wilmot Meeting House is the oldest building in town. It was put on rollers and pulled by oxen to its current location.

Itís okay, you can be a diva - with the Kearsarge Fiber Divas, that is. The group meets from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Wilmot Community Association barn the first and third Wednesday of each month. Bring your current project knit, crochet, hook rugs or needlepoint and meet your crafting neighbors.

Outdoor ice skating on Jannery Pond is true community recreation. The town doesnít own the pond, no one gets paid for clearing off the snow, and there arenít any schedules or fees. But when the ice is frozen and Wilmot skating enthusiasts start shoveling away the snow, you know itís time for some old-fashioned winter fun.
