Currier & Ives Scenic Byway
Henniker, Hopkinton, Warner, Webster, and Salisbury
Come stroll through the downtown villages and visit the riverside
shops and restaurants. Count the covered bridges along the way or challenge
yourself to a kayak ride on the Contoocook or Blackwater Rivers. Hike in Rollins
State Park or stop by orchards and farm stands to pick your own apples for a
fresh-baked pie. Whatever you choose, the Byway is your gateway to the heart of
Travelers of the Currier and Ives Scenic Byway will pass many sites of historic,
scenic, natural, cultural and recreational significance to the State of New Hampshire.
Bookending the route are two nationally-important historic sites- Daniel Webster’s
birthplace and the Franklin Pierce Homestead. But the real Currier & Ives experience
lies between these two historic homesteads.
Tranquil farmland peppers the landscape, where moss-covered stone walls mark old
property boundaries and open fields are still being hayed after more than 200 years.
Views of Mt. Kearsarge, Pats Peak and surrounding hills beckon travelers and
showcase vivid fall foliage colors. Historic churches and community buildings line the
route in village clusters from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and embody
quintessential northern New England town centers. Various festivals, fairs, summer
concerts, and museums reflect the communities’ rich rural culture, drawing both
residents and visitors from all over New England and the country.
Create your perfect New Hampshire getaway.
