Museum of White Mountain Art hosts ‘On the Road to Jackson’ Inaugural Exhibit

Jackson, NH’s newest museum and art gallery opened this fall, and it’s free inaugural exhibition is on display through January 6, 2013. ‘The Road to Jackson: A Glimpse of the White Mountains of New Hampshire’ features a selection of 47 nineteenth century paintings from private collections that depict scenes along routes south from Gorham, north from Tamworth, and east from Crawford Notch as well as around Jackson. Visit the Jackson Historical Society’s website to see a selection of images from the exhibit. There also is a giant topographical map of the Mount Washington Valley.

The new museum was created through a $200,00 renovation of space in the historic Town Hall. The original builder of the Town Hall, located along the Wildcat River near Jackson’s stone bridge, was Andrew Harriman. In 1893, Harriman also built the home that became the Inn at Ellis River.

The Museum of White Mountain Art is open 10:00 am – 4:00 pm Saturdays and Sundays. A hard cover catalogue of the inaugural exhibition is available for $75, and includes 58 full color images and an essay “A Glimpse of White Mountain Scenery” by Charles Vogel.
