History of Canaan, N. H.

The History of Canaan, N. H. is a wonderful history of the town and its people. It is available in hardcover from the Canaan Historical Society. Buy a copy and enjoy the heft of a good book to read as you sit by the fire. To order a copy, call Donna Zani Dunkerton, the Society's Historian and Corresponding Secretary, at (603) 523-7960.

The book is 694 pages long, and I am attempting to make a true copy for research use on the web. Please be patient while I can scan and publish a web edition of the whole book. I work using an iMac and the following tools:

Scanner: Epson Perfection 1200U
OCR: Caere OmniPage Pro 8.2
HTML: PageSpinner 2.1

I will welcome suggestions, corrections and other observations about the reformatting of this document to make it a useful research tool. If you send notice of what seem to be errors in the pages, I will check them against the original, and correct them if they are my errors, not Wallace's. I hope you find this a helpful research tool.
