                         John P. Huggins  (1826-         )


Mr. John Huggins, is a worthy example  of the self-made men of Carroll county.  He was born at Wolfe borough, May 3, 1826.  He came of industrious ancestors and  was a  worker  from  the early  years, assisting   his  father on  the  farm. He attended  district  school   winters  and  had  the advantage of Wolfe borough and Tuftonborough Academy for three terms.


At the age of eighteen Mr. Huggins went to Boston, where he remained one year as   clerk  at   the Bromfield  House.  He went  from there  to  Dartmouth  Hotel, Hanover, as clerk  for one year. From there he went to Lowell,MA . Then with his brothers he bought the property of the   Cosmopolitan  Hotel. Corner of Chambers street and west Broadway. At one time    he was  President of Metro Gas & Light Company and for many year its director.


He had  tremendous financial  ability and  honesty,  always   despising trickery and fraud; was a social, genial  friend,  plain and   honest  spoken, and  an  honor to his native town.

 

  Will include a more complete Bio at a later date.
