Yankee Magazine's March/April 2013 Issue— The Power of Place
“The Power of Place: I Will Not Leave”— by Howard Mansfield (p. 102): Romaine Tenney vowed he would never abandon his family’s Vermont farm, which lay in the path of the future of Interstate 91.
“The Power of Place: A Promise Kept”— by Mel Allen (p. 18): John Calvin Kenneth Poore, who died in 1983, lived nearly every one of his 98 years on the Stewartstown, New Hampshire farm that his grandfather bought in the early 1830s. Through the Poore Family Foundation, his legacy— a farmstead that’s remained untouched since before the Civil War and includes a five-bedroom house without indoor plumbing, electricity, or running water— is now a living-history museum.
“Going the Distance”— by Ian Aldrich (p. 33): Four-time Boston marathon winner Bill Rodgers shares his running tips.
“Fenway’s Other Beloved Park”— by Aimee Seavey (p. 36): In the shadow of Boston’s skyscrapers, lush greenery reigns at the Fenway Victory Gardens.
In the Food section, “Best Cook In Town” Caroline Craig whips up her famous sticky buns (page 64). In “Making the Grade,” it’s all about maple: Maple-Pecan Oat Pancakes, Coleslaw with Maple-Cider Dressing, Maple Baked Beans, Maple-Glazed Spareribs, French-Toast Bread Pudding with Rum Spike-Maple-Toffee Sauce, and Maple-Walnut Layer Cake with Easy Maple Frosting (page 65). And in “Homegrown,” elegant beers from Vermont’s Hill Farmstead Brewery get rave reviews.
Annie Graves writes a story for the Home section called “Building for Forever” about Unity College and its recently-built president’s house, which produces as much energy as it uses with a net-zero footprint (page 48). “New England’s Finest” features tools and kitchenware from local artisans for a made-in-New England kitchen (page 56). Caroline Woodward shows how to make her “Inspired Idea,” brightly colored string eggs. In “Antiques & Collectibles,” Catherine Riedel writes about vintage costume jewelry made in Providence, Rhode Island, from the 1930s to the mid-1950s (page 60).
And, in the Travel section, Stephen Jermanok discovers some of New England’s most surprising art treasures in little-known museums, galleries, and libraries.
