come hear the stories of the folks who once lived here in Sutton, NH
It’s been years since the Sutton Historical Society presented Voices from the Past, a live cemetery tour where you would meet and hear some of Sutton’s most interesting historic folks. Now after eleven years, some more of Sutton’s earlier citizens are back to tell their stories. At the First Free Will Baptist Church on August 10th, at 10 a.m. Glenn Knoblock of the N.H. Humanities to Go will speak about old New England Cemeteries and gravestone markings. Following the talk, take a stroll through the adjacent cemetery where you will meet, among others, Sarah Kezar Huntoon. Mrs. Huntoon will tell you about the large boarding house hotels on Kezar Lake. Lydia Wadleigh will tell you about her campaign for women’s education back in the 1800’s. You will meet Frank Pressey who will tell you about the first automobiles in Sutton, and Lillian Kohlrausch whose father-in-law, Charles Kohlrausch built the first summer home on Kezar Lake. Pictured on this page is Dr. Robert Lane, 1786-1872, who healed and comforted citizens in the town. No admission for the speaker, donations are welcome for the tour. Light refreshments will be available. For more information, call 927-4247.
