Bear Brook Gardens Maps 1977 through 1985

   If you see errors on this page or notice names that should be here but aren't, can you email Ronda and Scott at Oakhillresearch@gmail.com?



The folks at Eastern Topographics in Wolfeboro NH have generously donated their time to enhance and make available some 1988 aerial photography for us. This has made it much easier for us to determine what lots people are talking about when they describe to us on the phone or on Facebook where they lived and who lived next to them. We couldn't fit all the lot #s on this map of the whole park but the maps below have all of the #s.



We will be using the original Lot #s from the Park: 1-115 and starting where the lots are labeled on the map above (Hillside Drive). The 3 dots after a name (i.e. the Lagor family) show that the same people lived at that lot during the years we are looking at.
Please let us know if we have a lot or name wrong. There are several places we have some confusion about. You can post anonymously on this page to let us know needed changes.

Where did these people live in BBG???

Ball, Bruno, Burnham, Carter, Christine (68?), Cole, Comtois, Delosh, Delottinville, Desrochers, Gagnon, Greenwood, Hitchcock, Jenness, Joyce, Kiriakoutsos, Koutrouba, McCluskey, Lepine,  Pellerin, Perkins, Pope, Rogers, Rutledge, Simmons, Stanley, Stremlau, Turner, Wood.


We are also going to be adding names to the lots in Bear Brook Gardens #2. Can you help us place numbers and names here?
 Some of the names we know were in BBG2: Calnan, Northrup, Allen Despres, Bergeron, Elwell, Paquette, Parrotto, Morgan, Sawyer. Where did they live? Who are we missing?


Guessing this map was early 1980s (WE drew in the 5 lots on Stony Brook as those homes were already gone)

  1. OK, we were able to get an older map on here that shows the roads that were removed. That's been a big help! Until we saw this map last week-end, we'd never even heard there was a Myrtle Ave in Bear Brook Gardens.

  2. where was the store? Locate the store using section #3.

  3. I think the best way to show the proximity of the store to BBG is by looking at the aerial map. Newspaper accounts say that the first barrel was found behind 22 Edgewood (red flag on map). Not sure how far behind it. You can see the remnants of the sand pit at the bottom of Edgewood Dr to the right. You can see the trail winding up from the sandpit to the driveway of what was once Bear Brook Store (just to the left of the green lettering of the word "South." And across Deerfield Rd from that driveway is the little trailer park referred to as Bear Brook Gardens #2.

  4. This old map is helpful. As far as Stonybrook I remember the majority of those lots being vacant land. We would sometimes access the brook via that route. Similarly, 99 Pinecrest has never existed. I'm not sure what the round marker would even represent. - Belinda

  5. I wish there were more pictures of the area... I've been trying to write down everything I remember about the Host Home I was at... The landmarks I remember to get to the house in the woods...
