The Livery


This unique, antique 38 star flag flew on The Livery during Sunapee’s Sestercentennial, courtesy of Aaron Simpson. *The history of The Livery in Sunapee Harbor maybe found at:

Our nation’s flag had 38 stars when ground was broken for construction of Sunapee’s historic Livery in 1890. On July 4th, 1890, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Washington were accepted into the union and 5 stars were added.

The Livery was built as a horse stable to serve the needs of the adjacent Harbor House Hotel. In those days, access to Sunapee was primarily by train and steamboat. Visitors, once they arrived, had need for horses and carriages for hire.

“The beloved Livery is regarded as a symbol of the community and adapted with imagination and determination to serve the community in ever-changing ways”. James L. Garvin, NH State Architectural Historian.
