Maps and Art in Jackson

This past weekend our history odyssey included a visit to the Museum of White Mountain Art at the Jackson Historical Society. What an adventure, not to be missed! First, even before we entered the building, there was an incredible "pumpkin people" display depicting the funeral of the old man of the mountain done with great humor and taste. Be sure to examine all the unique details in this display. Then on the ground floor are displayed the paintings for their current art sale. Finally upstairs is the new exhibit "White Mountain Scenes, Different Views, Different Artists. The opening reception will be Friday night, October 17, 2014 from 6-9pm. Check their website: http://www.jacksonhistory.org/ for details. Jackson Historical Society President G. Warren Schomaker gifted the Henney History Room with a copy of the new catalog for the map portion of the display, Scaling the White Mountains. A Selection of White Mountain Maps. (More on this book later).
