The Connecticut Lakes region is the last great frontier of the North Country. Forming the extreme northern tip of the state, it offers the only port of entry from Canada into New Hampshire. It includes Pittsburg, the most sizable township in the country-three hundred thousand acres in all-and the beautiful and wild Connecticut Lakes. Its fascinating history glistens in the two-hundred-plus images of New Hampshire's Connecticut Lakes Region. Pictured are rich logging lands, a mecca for sportsmen for more than a hundred years, and waterfront camps, cabins, and lodges. From 1832 to 1836, Pittsburg was known as the Indian Stream Republic, maintaining independence from both the United States and Canada.
