Historic New England presents Touring New England, 1820 - 1970
Touring New England explores why the region’s natural and built environments have been tourist destinations for centuries. The exhibition explores why and how tourists traveled, where they stayed, what they purchased, and how they recorded their experiences. Touring New England touches on the distinct characteristics of each New England state: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
From cities to the seacoast, resorts to mountain ranges, Touring New England showcases the appeal of the region’s history, natural beauty, and built attractions. Visit Roseland Cottage between June 5 and October 15 to see the exhibition on display in the carriage barn. To see a preview visit HistoricNewEngland.org/Touring.
