Politics and Profit: The Sinclair House in Bethlehem, 1840 – 1880

July 24 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Part of the 2019 Grand Hotels Summer Speaker Series

Before the Grand Hotels defined the apogee of White Mountain Tourism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, small hotels for transients and boarding houses abounded in the region. The early development of the Sinclair House in Bethlehem is a fine example of how diverse political and economic activities that involved politicians and business magnates throughout New England could be the foundation for a vacation mecca.

Presented by Rebecca W. S. More, Ph.D, Visiting Scholar, Dept. of History, Brown University.
