Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 16 My parents honeymooned here in 1940 by Hollace
My parents went to Balance Rock on their honeymoon in 1940. I will be happy to download their snapshots. Was it already part of a State Park in 1940? They stayed in a white, clapboard cottage called the Pontoosuc Lodge. Does that ring a bell? They visited a friend, Elmer Swack, at his farm in Pittsfield.
