Yankee Magazine's January/February 2013 Issue
DUBLIN, New Hampshire (December 13, 2012)— On newsstands December 25, Yankee Magazine’s January/February issue explores things that stand the test of time— from Johnson Woolen Mills, a small Vermont company that has kept us warm with its signature red-checked shirts and heavy-duty green trousers since 1842 (p. 19), to the “Best 5 Used Bookstores,” and a laugh-filled look at how to deal with owning an old house (p. 23). In “The Man Who Listens to Soldiers,” Colonel Jon Coffin welcomes the men and women of the Vermont National Guard home from the war and helps them endure the long and often painful healing process (p. 14). Then, read all about “New Englandville: The Town of Our Dreams,” our quintessential little village that gathers everything we love about New England into one perfect place.
“Everyone will want to spend days, or weeks—or years, even—in ‘New Englandville’ (p. 30). It’s the place where you can sink deep into an inviting library chair looking out to sea, or ski the trails that wind through the hills, or meet friends for the best coffee and doughnuts for miles around, or simply wander one of the country’s best small art museums,” says Yankee Magazine’s editor Mel Allen.
