Overview

Cemeteries Around Lake Winnipesaukee, a photographic study, reveals the compelling history of the region from the time when Native Americans first inhabited the lake's shore to the 1900s. These cemeteries are some of the oldest cultural and archaeological remnants of the past around the lake, and their scenic locations and gravestones and monuments provide a tangible link to the past. Through the author's collection of photographs, readers can see the final resting places of people as diverse as early settlers, ministers, doctors, Revolutionary and Civil War veterans, drowning victims, and even a controversial author. Readers will also discover the art and business of gravestone carving and learn about some of the region's early practitioners in this unusual art form.
