Hobbs Inn


I came accross this recently. The image is on what looks like a china tea bag holder. Any idea what / where Hobbs Inn is now?

I recall that the Dobbs Inn sign (only) appeared in a very old postcard posted here of downtown—which makes me think it was near where the Post Office is now.

Nice find: that's got to be one of Wolfeboro's oldest souvenirs around!

Yes, I am pretty sure it was where the PO is. If not it was in Hunter's parking lot as there was a big hotel there, but I think Hobbs was where the po is.
