Program: Hidden Gems of New England with author Alison O’Leary

Thursday, June 18 @ 6:00 p.m.

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, an Eskimo in New Hampshire.

Based on the new 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.

Find out about:

  • Secluded swimming holes
  • Old-growth forests
  • Sites of hostage takings and cannibalism
  • Adventure tourism
  • Stunning vistas
  • Back road and rail trail biking
  • Cozy inns


The slide presentation is free, open to the public and suitable for all ages.
