Through most of the 19th century farming was the chief industry in the Squam Lake area. In ever increasing numbers, farmers left NH for better farm lands to the west in the last half of the century, and by the beginning of the 20th century many old farms along the lake passed into the hands of summer visitors who could afford them as summer homes, some of whom became 'gentlemen farmers' on these old farms. There are still several of these 100-250 year old farms carrying on the business of farming today - one of note is the Burleigh farm on the west side of Squam Lake; it takes up most of this photo, with the farm buildings situated beneath Mt Webster (note the huge size of the buildings - this was and apparently still is a very successful operation). Named are some of the Squam Range's most noted mountains - Morgan and Percival get intensive use, year-long, by hikers, and one trail runs across the spine of the entire length of the range, from Sandwich Notch to Holderness village.
