The first published drawing of Mount Monadnock was created by Charles T. Jackson in about 1840. Since then, hundreds of artists have depicted the mountain in all seasons, from all angles, in a variety of styles, and told many different stories. The images created by these men and women have been enjoyed by countless viewers and served to advertise Mount Monadnock near and far. Join Alan Rumrill, historian and director of the Historical Society of Cheshire County, for an online talk highlighting some of their paintings and stories.

5:30 to 6:30 p.m. via Zoom.  Closed captioning will be available. To get the login details, please register here.

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and the Historical Society of Cheshire County.
