Finns in New Hampshire--Lehtinen Woods

I am researching the Finns in New Hampshire as I procrastinate on housework and class prep. Here is a lovely picture from the Lehtinen Woods Trail in Penacook, NH. Gustav Lehtinen was Concord's first planning director. And here is a link so that you can explore Lehtinen Woods. If you go this summer, bring your swim suit! Wait a while and bring your skis.

  1. I am very interested in your research about Finns in NH and would like to correspond with you about it. My greatuncle Carl Salmi (not sure of the last name) apparently was a dairy farmer in Penacook, NH, in the 1920s or so. We are trying to find out more and have a couple of photos which we think are of the farmhouse. Please contact me via email at: wellsangels.joan@gmail.com
