Chester Scarecrows

It is fall in New Hampshire....lots to do around here but this past Sunday, we jumped into the car and headed to a neighboring town to see a bit of fun.

In the small town of Chester, they have a scarecrow contest and it has become a big deal over the last few years.
Since there is a lot of history to be found I our state, there were lots of historical characters included ....this cannoneer from the civil war at the town center.
A young boy who is claimed to be the youngest to die in a war is buried here...he was a drummer for the army.

This picture is of a Revolutionary Soldier.

Here is a guy standing at one of the covered bridges.
And let's not forget Uncle Sam.

We saw many other scarecrows but it was so much fun to search for them throughout the town.  It ended up being a fun afternoon!
