Familiar Places of Old

I often dream of familiar places, especially ones from my childhood. Considering some recent dreams, I started to think about what places I spent the most time in as a child. Some of these I still dream about constantly, while others are imprinted on my mind enough I could map them, but for some reason they're not the setting for dreams.

Here's my list -- all in Andover, BTW:
