Kancamagus Highway Hits 50
The Kancamagus Highway, the only route to connect motorists from Lincoln to Conway, NH, had a long, colorful history, even before its official summer 1959 opening and thousands of foliage-seekers found its breathtaking vistas.
With two days of events and programs, New Hampshire’s scenic Route 112, “The Kanc,” was honored for its 50-year anniversary August 14 and 15, 2009. Yankee‘s foliage blogger Jeff Folger writes about his day on the Kanc.
These two Yankee Classics focus on the wild and woolly history of this New Hampshire Scenic Byway.
