Nestled at the base of Mount Skatutakee, Jack’s Pond is one of Hancock’s hidden gems. The pond is named after Jack, a once-enslaved African who gained his freedom and lived nearby in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Join Hancock writer Eric Aldrich, Harris Center naturalist Susie Spikol, and Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire Director JerriAnne Boggis for a 1.75-mile roundtrip hike to Jack’s Pond, where we’ll hear about Jack’s life, the families he was connected with, and how Black history that’s been so long in the shadows is now coming to light.

This event is now full. To be added to the waiting list, please contact Susie.

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire.
