Kancamagus Highway


This scenic highway through the White Mountain National Forest was constructed through the combined efforts of the New Hampshire Department of Public Works and Highways, the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads, and the U.S. Forest Service.
The road was opened between Conway and Lincoln in 1959.
The scenic road opens the Swift and the East Branch of the Pemigewasset River watersheds for increased public use.
Take your time and enjoy your drive.


Who Was Kancamagus?



Kancamagus (the Fearless One), grandson of Passaconaway, succeeded his uncle, Wonalancet, about 1684 as third and final "Sagamon" of the Penacook Confederacy.
He tried to maintain peace between the Indians and whites, but harassment from the English aggravated this hot-tempered chieftain until he let loose the furies of war, causing much bloodshed.
The tribes of the confederacy became scattered after 1691 and Kancamagus, with his followers, moved either to northern New Hampshire or into Canada.
