The Bungalow Restaurant Grove at Contoocook River Park in #Penacook. "For twenty cents in 1893, and up until the 1920’s, you could ride 14 miles on the trolley from downtown Concord to Penacook to enjoy free entertainment, fireworks, swimming, dancing at a large pavilion, boating, roller-skating, bowling, and even a steamboat ride up the Contoocook River. The park closed in 1925."
