Event description

Description

Join the New Hampshire Historical Society for a special day at John Hay’s historic New Hampshire estate, The Fells, overlooking scenic Lake Sunapee. Lincoln’s private secretary during the Civil War and a respected diplomat and journalist, Hay used The Fells as a retreat in the late 1800s. This special daylong excursion will include tours of the house and gardens, lunch, and a talk by historian Philip McFarland about his recently published book, John Hay, Friend of Giants: The Man and Life Connecting Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Henry James, and Theodore Roosevelt (2017). We'll top off the day with a narrated cruise of Lake Sunapee.
