The Shore Path

The Shore Path was a walkway along the eastern, Lake Winnipesaukee edge of the Methodist Campground. It followed the shoreline around Doe Point, from today’s Winnipesaukee Pier to the Akwa Marina. For the most part, the pathway no longer exists, as private lakefront property homeowners have closed off access over the years.

The publisher of the postcard below, Detroit Publishing, has cleverly inserted their logo onto the sidewalk, on the lower left. 

The Shore Path

The Shore Path had a great view of the Lake.

Various postcard views of the Shore Path.  The first card called the path the “Sore” Path and mis-spelled the “Wiers”. The card shows a family gathered at their house on the Weirs waterfront, but does not show the actual path.

The following postcards show the entrance to the Shore Path. All of the postcards and photos of the Shore Path on this webpage are looking in the same, northward direction.
