Why drive the byway?

Absorb views along a 200+ year old stagecoach route that once clip-clopped from Boston to Concord.

Immerse yourself in the landscapes of Robert Frost, who lived in Derry from 1900-1911.

Amble betwixt unspoiled woodlands and tranquil Massabesic Lake, or reverence the reflections of a cool autumn sunset on its placid waters.

The byway in a nutshell

The unifying theme of the joint byway is the history and culture of rural Southern NH. This includes how it was shaped by the early transportation network of the region - most specifically the stage coach service that connected Boston and Concord.

 

More broadly, the byway celebrates NH's rural landscape and communities - the villages, farmsteads, orchards, and denizens brought to life in the writing of Poet Laureate and former Derry resident Robert Frost.
