The Hancock Inn has been welcoming guests for two hundred and twenty five years. Join us as we explore New Hampshire throughout this time with walking tours and dinner speakers – the people that have shaped the region with their ideas, work and lives and the places that make the Monadnock region a historical and cultural treasure.
10am – On Saturday morning take a walk with Eric Aldrich to explore the lives of Hancock’s early residents through the holes their homes left behind. When he’s not working for The Nature Conservancy or moving trail cameras around in the woods of Hancock, Eric Aldrich is seeking cellar holes and researching the fascinating lives of the characters that lived there.
6pm – For dinner on Saturday, join Henry Walters for a look at the poet Robert Frost, whose work mines the cellar holes and other relics of New England’s past for the symbols that continue to define its present. Henry Walters is a poet, practicing falconer, and naturalist who lives in Dublin, New Hampshire. He is the author of a book of poems, Field Guide A Tempo.
