About Reminiscence of Granite State

Reminiscence of Granite State is the web page to introduce the lifestyle of Granite State and its neighbors. Granite State is a nickname for the state of New Hampshire, USA. I lived in Granite State for about 7 years, from September 1993 to December 1994 and then from September 1997 to March 2002.  I had a lot of experiences at the magnificent region, which make me regard it as my second home. To write all the good stories about the region down to tell others, the web page was established.  My memories of Granite State are all constant and hard as granite. May they stay as a lifetime experience.

History of this Web site

This web page was initially launched as my personal web page back in March 1999, when I was a college student at New Hampshire College, studying Computer Information Systems. It was the web page to introduce about myself, my interests and so forth. I also had sections in which I published many covered songs, played with the guitar. The personal web page went on until the time that it was replaced with this site in 2002.

Where is Granite State?

As it was mentioned above, Granite State stands for New Hampshire, United States. It is the state located near land's end in the northeastern region. It is one of the conservative states in the U.S, the term "granite" can imply its traits. In Addition, the symbol of Granite State is a old man in the mountain, a man-faced rock situated in northern New Hampshire. (Sorry to hear that it's gone now.)  

Granite State stands for New Hampshire, one of the states in the U.S. It is in New England region and is specified with pink on the map.
