This historic map of New Hampshire was created in 1926 by Elizabeth Shurtleff & Helen McMillin, a prominent team of illustrators from the early 20th century. With this map they cleverly combined Granite State legend and history, mixing the past and present with skill and humor.
Landmarks on the map include The White Mountains, Market Square, The Old Man of the Mountain, Dartmouth College, Lake Sunapee, Newbury, Bradford, Henniker and Lake Massasecum. The map also features a poem from an 1885 graduate of Dartmouth College which reads,
“They have the still North in their soul, The hill-winds in their breath; And the granite of New Hampshire is made part of them till death.” – Richard Hovey, Dartmouth Class of 1885
