Lucy Crawford: A Living History Presentation

  • Weeks State Park Week's State Park Road Lancaster, NH, 03584 United States (map)

Lucy Crawford's 1845 History of the White Mountains was the first book published about the White Mountains, a chronicle of the Crawford family's 50-year effort to introduce the visiting public to the wonders and beauty of the area. Dijit Taylor's living history portrayal of Lucy Crawford evokes the early days of mountain exploration and trail building with associated disasters, birth and death, love and betrayal, and day-to-day life. Dijit was inspired to create the character of Lucy Crawford both by Lucy's own book and by time spent at AMC's Mizpah Spring Hut when her daughters were on the crew.
