NH's Ornaments for the 2014 National Christmas Tree "Pathway of Peace" display in Washington, D.C.
 

New Hampshire Veterans Home residents have partnered with Tilton School students to create ornaments for the New Hampshire tree that will be part of the “Pathway of Peace” National Christmas Tree display in Washington, D.C., throughout December 2014.

Veterans and students worked in pairs on the ornaments, which represent New Hampshire’s natural beauty and history. Each ornament is one of a kind. Designs incorporate wildlife, pine trees and pine cones, the Cog Railway, snow, mountains, autumn leaves, abstract designs, fishing, the Old Man of the Mountain, and our state’s motto, “Live Free or Die.”

A full press release about this project is available in the NH Department of Cultural Resources' Media Room.
