Fodor's Review

The estate of John Jacob Glessner (1843–1936), one of the founders of International Harvester, now serves as the 1,400-acre North Country Conservation and Education Center for the Forest Society. Some of the most striking restored buildings here are in the Shingle style. The property is named for the many surface boulders on the estate when Glessner bought it—some were used to erect its rambling rock walls. Open year-round, the Rocks presents natural-history programs and has self-guided tours and hiking trails with excellent views of the Presidential Range. Come winter, cross-country ski trails and a select-your-own-Christmas-tree farm open up. In spring, watch syrup being made in the New Hampshire Maple Experience Museum.
