Upcoming Initiatives

A dedicated group of Cheshire County residents began meeting in 2015 to create a Center for commemorating the life of Jonathan Daniels of Keene and providing a space for self-reflection. The Center will: house an exhibit in the Historical Society of Cheshire County, preserve artifacts and stories associated with Jonathan Daniels, coordinate public programming, and provide access to educational resources.

  • Over the past 20 years the Jonathan Daniels School in Keene developed learning activities including a student-developed Jonathan Daniels play, exploring themes of social responsibility in a poster contest, and a collection of books and videos, photos, and artifacts. These materials are soon to be made available for curriculum enhancement for 5-11 year old students.
  • Self-guided tour materials will be provided for Keene, NH and areas of significance in Jonathan Daniels’ life to assist individuals and tour groups.
