Currier & Ives Scenic Byway

The Currier and Ives Scenic Byway is a 30-mile long state-designated route that passes through the Towns of Salisbury, Webster, Warner, Hopkinton, and Henniker. It is part of the New Hampshire Scenic & Cultural Byways Program administered by the NH Department of Transportation (NHDOT). The Currier & Ives Scenic Byway Council is a volunteer organization with representatives from each of the five Byway towns. Byway Council members are appointed by their Select Board.

The Byway Council is currently seeking designation of an extension that would follow Route 103 into downtown Warner and up Kearsarge Mountain Road to the Rollins State Park toll gate. This extension would incorporate Warner’s downtown shops and businesses and recreational opportunities at Rollins State Park. A public hearing regarding the nomination application will be held in spring 2017.

The Currier & Ives Byway Council meets quarterly on a rotating basis among the five Byway towns. Meetings are open to the public, and all interested parties are welcome. Information is available on the Byway website at www.currierandivesbyway.org.

Please contact your Byway Council representatives if you are interested in learning more. The Town of Salisbury Byway Council Representatives is Joseph Schmidl. Central NH Regional Planning Commission provides administrative support to the Byway Council and can be reached at cnhrpc@cnhrpc.org.
