Nathaniel Currier and James Merritt Ives became popular print makers at a time when the industrial revolution was creating nostalgia for a simpler era. Over a century later, folks are finding iconic New England villages and active recreation along the Currier & Ives Scenic Byway in central New Hampshire. The Currier & Ives Scenic Byway winds through rural towns and opens to breathtaking vistas.

Come stroll through downtown Henniker and stop for a visit at the New England College art gallery. Visit the riverside shops and restaurants. Count the covered bridges along the way or challenge yourself to a kayak ride on the Contoocook or Blackwater rivers. Hike in our second growth forests to discover stone walls built by our original New England settlers over 250 years ago. Stop by the orchards and farm stands to pick your own apples or pick up a fresh baked pie. Whatever you choose, the Byway is your gateway to the heart of New Hampshire.

Come . . . Picture Yourself This Way!
