Please join our assisted living residents on November 5 at 2 pm for a presentation about the history of Meredith by author and local historian Dan Heyduk based on his book Meredith Chronicles. Meredith Chronicles is a history of Meredith from the nomadic hunters of 12,000 years ago to the Twentieth Century. It includes land speculators, hardy settlers, mill-builders and mill-workers, advancing women, an almanac-maker and a hermit. It shows how people in Meredith and Laconia handled the "Year without a Summer," the sheep boom, the coming of the railroad and steamboats, tourists and summer campers, and the Hurricane of 1938.
Daniel Heyduk, Ph. D., is an anthropologist and historian. He has been a college professor, has lived with native people in Mexico and Bolivia, did archaeology in Ecuador, and managed educational programs worldwide. He writes the "Passing Time" local history column in the Meredith News and he is the author of the new book "Meredith Chronicles" about Meredith's history.
