Read this short essay about the Indigenous history of the Wobanadenok , or White Mountains, from the Indigenous New Hampshire Collaborative Collective. Do you know the stories behind the places we now refer to as the Old Man of the Mountain, Mount Washington, and Mount Chocorua?

The Quilts of Valor Foundation provides service members and veterans with homemade quilts. The local Buntin-Rumford-Webster Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution was going to create a Quilt of Valor to award in December to a WWII veteran, but due to COVID-19 they can’t meet in person. They decided to show a YouTube video about Quilts of Valor for their June meeting since their Humanities to Go program was cancelled. I am impressed with how our communities are transitioning to still bring programming to their audiences in new and different ways. You can watch the video here .
