About this title


Jackson, a “spot of gold in the White Mountains,” has changed a great deal since it was first settled by Captain Joseph Pinkham in 1789. With no road from Bartlett, Pinkham and his family traveled through snow five feet deep with their meager belongings drawn on a sled harnessed to the family hog to get to the area. From such humble beginnings Jackson grew into one of the premier resort locations in the Northeast. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, up to forty trains a day brought visitors anxious to experience the tremendous natural beauty of the area: the cold, clear streams; the towering, snow-clad mountains; and the mysterious wooded valleys cast a spell over all of those lucky enough to visit the Jackson area.

About the Author:

It is this combination of awe-inspiring natural beauty and rich heritage that has been captured in this compelling visual history. Richard Johnson has created a charming trip down memory lane that will be enjoyed by resident and tourist alike, but that will also contribute to our awareness of the need to preserve our natural resources and history for generations to come.
