With its white steeple, red brick meetinghouse and verdant common, Hancock is the quintessential New Hampshire village. Author Cynthia Amidon has unearthed stories about this close-knit community from the rich archives at the Hancock Historical Society. In this first ever collection of her well-spun tales, Amidon sketches profiles of ambassadors and scoundrels, renowned artists and forty-niners from Hancock's storied past. Discover how a small band of intrepid settlers triumphed over war, disease and hunger and created beloved traditions like Old Home Day and the Town Meeting. Accompanied by vintage images, these stories reveal the historic charm and vibrant spirit of the town noted to have the "most Currier and Ives Main Street in New England."
