Not only does the White Mountain region have a long history of maps and map makers, it also boasts one of the richest assortment of map designs of any mountainous region. Each map describes specific places and routes, and also tells a story of the knowledge, curiosity, purposes, pleasures, and design ideas of the people of its time. This interactive exhibit will feature maps from the far and recent past, as well as new map tools for today’s hikers, tourists, scientists, weekend explorers, and enthusiasts.
