John Steinbeck may or may not have slept here along the banks of the Connecticut River at Lancaster, N.H., on Sept. 30, 1960. In "Charley" he says he stopped near an iron bridge at what would have been the long-gone Whip 'o Will motel on US Route 2. No one was there to rent him a cabin so he said he slept in his camper shell. Steinbeck stayed in the Lancaster area twice on his trip, once going east to Maine and once going west to Chicago. He said he camped on a farm one night (but didn't) and by the river the other. On one of his stops -- probably Sept. 30, 1960 -- he stayed nearby at the exclusive Spalding Inn in the White Mountains.
