First published in 1988 by the New Hampshire Historical Society, and long since sought after, On the Road North of Boston is back in print. This entertaining book is an invaluable resource for residents and students of New Hampshire history. Nine extensively researched and meticulously prepared chapters depict historic taverns and tavern society of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century New England. Donna-Belle and James Garvin vividly reconstruct the physical landscape: the taverns, the network of roads, travel conditions, and traffic, They immerse the reader in encounters with fellow travelers, entertainment, and hospitality in its earliest incarnations "on the road north of Boston." On the Road North of Boston contains illustrations of authentic tavern signs and furnishings, broadsides advertising tavern entertainments, early photographs and drawings of tavern buildings, road signs, and bridges, portraits of tavern keepers, stage drivers, and performers. This book offers New England residents and modern travelers rich chronicles and visions of an age long past.
