Before the nineteenth century, the White Mountains were seen as a fearsome wild region to be traveled through as quickly as possible. Today, the mountains are a place to linger and find renewal and energy. Harkening back to the MWM inaugural exhibit, “Passing Through,” we will explore the changes in transportation and accommodations that made the mountains accessible and welcoming.

Long a devotee of White Mountains history, she served as executive director of the Museum of the White Mountains where her interest in the connections between past and present environments and culture deepened.
