Jul 11, 2021 · 12:00 am

Due to the global pandemic, this exhibition which was originally scheduled for summer of 2020 will now take place during the summer of 2021. Boston Map Society members will still be going on a field trip, but logistics will not be finalized until closer to the rescheduled date.

The Boston Map Society is pleased to offer field trips for members that provide special access to New England's many map-rich institutions. For field trip details and a chance to RSVP, become a member and join us!

Not only does the White Mountain region have a long history of maps and map makers, it also boasts one of the richest assortments of map designs of any mountainous region. Each map describes specific places and routes, and also tells a story of the knowledge, curiosity, purposes, pleasures, and design ideas of the people of its time. This interactive exhibit will feature maps from the far and recent past, as well as new map tools for today’s hikers, tourists, scientists, weekend explorers, and enthusiasts.
