Jackson Historical Society Presents “Selected Maps of the White Mountains from 1852 – 1903″

Sunday, April 23rd 4 PM

[Jackson, NH] – Join the Jackson Historical Society and presenter Peter Benson on Sunday, April 23, 2023 at 4:00 PM for Part 2 “Selected Maps of the White Mountains from 1852 – 1903”. This program will be held at the Jackson Historical Society in the heart of Jackson village.

Following Peter’s first presentation on Early Maps of New Hampshire, Peter will now lead a presentation on White Mountain Maps from 1852 – 1903. This transformative period in American and World history brought many advances in communication and transportation, while at the same time creating a longing for the bucolic scenes of rural America. The White Mountain region, known as “The Switzerland of North America”, was at the forefront of welcoming visitors to the area, and numerous maps of many styles were created to satisfy the needs of a burgeoning tourist economy. We will look at sixteen maps of various styles and accuracy, from the Golden era of the Grand hotels and railroads.
