Bartlett in Carroll County, New Hampshire — The American Northeast (New England)
Bartlett Snow Roller
This snow roller, donated by Francis Savard of Intervale Farm, was once used to roll the roads in the Intervale section of Bartlett. Prior to the advent of snowplows, snow rolling was a common method of keeping the snow-covered roads passable in the winter. A team of horses pulled the roller, packing the snow so sleighs, and, later on, vehicles, could get around.
Members of the historical society spent months restoring the roller for the town's 225th anniversary (1790 - 2015) and for the continued enjoyment of residents and visitors alike. This roller shows the determination and perseverance of our forefathers to overcome the obstacles before them.
This plaque was generously donated by Historical Society members, Phil and Sue Franklin.
