Keene Public Library and the Historical Society of Cheshire County

Keene is the largest town in Cheshire County, located in the southwest corner of New Hampshire. Cheshire County is home to Mount Monadnock, one of the most climbed mountains in the world, which used to be frequented by Thoreau and Emerson. The Keene Public Library started scanning and uploading hundreds of historical photos and postcards of Keene and surrounding Cheshire County in its collection. When we ran out of our own photos, we started working on the thousands of photos at the Historical Society of Cheshire County. All of the scanning and enhancing of the photos has been done by our extraordinary volunteer, Bob Borden. Please feel free to add information or comments.
