Island Living on New Hampshire Chronicle 

Ever wonder what living on an island on Lake Winnipesaukee is like?  New Hampshire Chronicle visited with 3 families who own and live on islands during the summer months.  The museum’s Trustee Rick Kourian graciously drove the camera crew to each island and Trustee Tom Bell and his wife Roseanne are the owners of the first island visited, Littlest Mud Island.  We are thankful for their help putting this story together for New Hampshire Chronicle.
