Overview


The history of Meredith as a corporate town dates back more than two hundred thirty years. Like most older towns, especially those devoted largely to agriculture, Meredith has greatly diminished in territory since its original incorporation; unlike most New Hampshire towns of this size, however, it is progressive and prosperous, and the valuation of the town has steadily increased. This growth is the result of Meredith's change from an agricultural town to an industrial town to today's prosperous four-season resort in the heart of the Lakes Region, at the foothills of the White Mountains. Meredith, part of the Then & Now series, places vintage images alongside contemporary photographs, taken by photographer Aaron Ober, to show the changes that have taken place in this area through the years.
