Any Free Staters Here Know 'About New Hampshire?Submitted by barracuda_trader on Wed, 03/26/2014 - 07:32
While looking for a New Hampshire location for my Liberty Community project, I came across this restored generating station.
A fully operational Hyrdo-Electric Generating Mill with rental and retail electric generating income. It produces about $500,000 in income selling electricity.
And it's owned by the same man, William B. Ruger, Jr. who is selling the 500 acre estate depicted below.
So my mission to find a location for a Liberty Community has taken me to New Hampshire.
Newport, New Hampshire— Nestled amid more than 500 acres of verdant fields and grand forests, the charming and historic Northville Farm is being offered for sale at US$3.75 million. The estate is accessed by an enchanting story-book covered bridge, offering the utmost in privacy and seclusion.
Northville Farm retains the original ambience, grandeur, and charm of its copious history, with the comfort of contemporary conveniences. The estate was extensively remodeled in the 1870s by financier Austin Corbin, creator and founder of the nearby 25,000-acre Corbin Park hunting preserve and the Blue Mountain Forest Association. Further remodeled and expanded by the current owner, today Northville Farm features a 7,831-square-foot Victorian-style main residence, library building, large barn, four-bedroom guest house, caretaker’s home, and two workshop buildings.
I came across several property parcels for sale that would provide a base of operation and over 1,000 acres of farm and timber.
It just so happens that the properties are owned by the Ruger family. They have spared no expense in restoring several historic properties to their original condition.
Mr. Ruger is now in Maine working on another restoration project.
There is an airport adjacent to the Estate for easy access.
A little history:
A legend in American industry, Ruger had a hand in the original design and time-honored styling of every firearm his company produced. He continued to work on new creations up until his death. With his legendary leadership style, he led his business from “it can’t be done” remarks to a corporation listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: RGR). His firm has produced more than 20,000,000 firearms for hunting, target shooting, collecting, self-defense, law enforcement and for US and foreign governments.
Today, with plants in Newport, New Hampshire, and Prescott, Arizona, and corporate headquarters in Southport, Fairfield, Connecticut, Sturm, Ruger manufactures high-quality rifles, shotguns, pistols, and revolvers for a variety of sporting and law enforcement purposes. Its precision investment castings are made for a variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, general manufacturing and the golf market.
I will add more information as time allows.
