dc.description.abstractNathaniel and Armenia White were nineteenth-century citizens of Concord, New Hampshire, whose business endeavors and philanthropic activities had a substantial social impact on the city that is still visible today. This research uses a social history approach to show that Nathaniel White was significantly responsible for the retention of the state capital at Concord, as well as the funding and organization of numerous public works projects, real estate developments, and charitable endeavors throughout the city. Armenia White’s involvement with abolition and the women’s suffrage movement is well-documented, and connects her activism to the physical places within the city that are known for these social movements. The final product of this research is a proposed exhibit trail that highlights the Whites and their legacy through the city’s built environment and social consciousness, and proposes a retelling of Concord’s history with a focus on the nineteenth-century developments that are visibly evident in the city today.
