As you enter Jackson through its historic covered bridge built in 1876, you realize why it was nicknamed ” The Honeymoon Bridge”. As you pass through the bridge, you are entering a special place where the quality of life is unchallenged, the beauty of the area is breathtaking, and your appreciation of it increases every day that you relax amid its natural beauty.
Jackson in the mid-1800s became popular with artists of great renown who came by stage and boarded in local farm houses to record the scenic splendor of the White Mountains. Soon hotels were built and trains brought families to the area to experience the serenity that the artists pictured.
All boarding houses and hotels had many things in common. Every hour, a croquet game started and every hotel had a porch lined up with wicker chairs which were all occupied before and after every meal. Guests renewed old acquaintances and discussions centered on favorite hikes and those special moments at the spectacular Jackson Falls.
