NHLTC Visits New Black Heritage Marker at John Kulish Forest/Welch Family Farm
Members of the NH Land Trust Coalition recently had the opportunity to visit the new marker designating the John Kulish Forest/Welch Family Farm as a point of interest along New Hampshire's Black Heritage Trail. The tour was led by local historian Eric Aldrich and Forest Society Senior Education Director Dave Anderson.
A ceremony was held by the Black Heritage Trail of New Hampshire in September 2021 when the marker was erected. Building on the success of the Portsmouth Black Heritage Trail that began more than two decades ago, the Black Heritage Trail of NH is now a statewide organization that connects the stories of New Hampshire’s African heritage by documenting and marking the many historic sites that testify to this rich history. The Hancock marker was its first outside of Portsmouth.
