Concord as a Resort in June

A recent number of The Concord Evening Monitor contains the following editorial upon the subject of "Concord as a Resort in June." The editor's suggestions as to the advisability of establishing driveways in and around the beautiful capital of New Hampshire are certainly worthy of serious consideration and prompt action on the part of all who are interested in that state and its capital:—

Visitors at Concord are frequently remarking upon the improved street leading to the home of Mrs. Eddy, to whom the city is so greatly indebted for this excellent driveway. It has not been without its object lesson in stimulating our citizens to demand better roads. The beauty of Concord at this season of the year is something upon which every stranger comments. It would require but small effort on the part of our people to popularize Concord as a resort for the month of June and make it equal to some of the suburban towns about Boston. June is too early for people to go to the mountains or the seashore, yet there are thousands of people in the large cities who begin their sojourning for the summer in this month, and some as early as May, making first for some place which has the convenience of railroads and the beauties of rural surroundings.
