Abenaki Site at Intervale NH Preserves Native American Encampment

Full story at the Conway Daily Sun:

The Intervale site was once an encampment of  Abenaki, established by them to make and sell baskets to the visitors lured to the White Mountains in the late 19th century. The Abenaki were descended from the original inhabitants of the area; the camp was founded by Odanak Chief Joseph Laurent 1839-1917 (Sozap Lalo, author of New Familiar Abenakis and English Dialogues) and his son Stephen Laurent, postmaster in Jackson, NH.
