New Hampshire's First Tourists In The Lakes And Mountains

Lane, Charles Stuart
(Old Print Bar, 1992)

The history of N.H.'s first tourists is chronicled through excerpts from the earliest journals of travelers to the White Mountains & the Lakes Region. The president of Yale College, Timothy Dwight, because of health reasons, began a regular course of traveling, starting in 1796 & ending with his death in 1817. Through reading his travels in N.E. & N.Y., we are able to follow the development of the tourist industry in the White Mountains in the early 19th century. A list of hotels open for the season in 1892 provides information on the proprietors & daily fee for board & lodging.
