Historic Roads


Historic roads in the New Hampshire White Mountains: Some roads in the White Mountains started off as stagecoach roads, and they date back to the early 1800s and 1900s. Owners of the grand resorts built some roads, farmers built others, and the Civilian Conservation Corps also took part in the building of roads. These old roads played an important role in the early years of farming and tourism. Today, some of these old historic routes can still be explored, and this work focuses on the history surrounding them.
