History

In celebration of America's 200-Year (Bicentennial) Celebration, the Currier & Ives Scenic Byway was designated in 1976 as one of several picturesque New Hampshire "Yankee Trails."

In 1991, the United States Federal Highway Administration established the National Scenic Byways Program  to recognize outstanding roads for their intrinsic archaeological, historical, cultural, natural, scenic, and recreational quialities. In 1992, the State of New Hampshire adopted a Scenic and Cultural Byways System under RSA 238:19 to:

provide the opportunity for residents and visitorst to travel a system of byways which feature the scenic and cultural qualities of the state within the existing highway system, promote retention of rural and urban scenic byways, support the cultural , recreational, and historic attributes along the byways and expose the unique elements of the state's beauty, culture, and history.

In 1994, the Currier & Ives Scenic Byway became a state-designated Scenic and Cultural Byway.


Currier & Ives Scenic Byway Council

In early 2009, the Central New Hampshire Regional Planning Commission received a federal grant to help develop and adopt a Corridor Management Plan (see below) for the Currier & Ives Scenic Byway. This was a year-long effort that joined many segments of the communities together. As recommended by the Plan, a permanent Scenic Byway Council was formed. The Currier & Ives Scenic Byway Council is composed of Selectmen as well as members of local, regional, and state agencies, committees, and organizations. They play an advisory-only role and their purpose is to promote the Byway, encourage collaboration among the towns along the route, and to advocate for corridor-wide protection and improvement efforts. The Currier & Ives Scenic Byway Council meets quarterly and all meetings are open to the public.
