Hidden Gems of New England - VirtualTuesday February 23, 2021
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
Have you ever wandered through the woods and wondered who’d been there before?
New England’s woods and wild places are full of stories: cannibalism in Vermont, Thoreau’s cold and lonely night on Massachusetts’ Mt. Greylock, a stagecoach inn in New Hampshire.
Based on the book Inns and Adventures, by Alison O’Leary and Michael J. Tougias, Hidden Gems of New England takes audiences on virtual trips over mountains and through back roads of Vermont, New Hampshire and Western Massachusetts. It’s great inspiration for trip planning!
