On Foot, by Horse or Rail: Early Tourism in the White Mountains

Presented by Marcia Schmidt Blaine

To register for this FREE Zoom presentation, please email Rebecca Enman at rrenman@plymouth.edu or call 603-535-3210

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.

Marcia Schmidt Blaine is a professor of History and Executive Director of Government Relations. 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.
