The John and Israel Glines Society
The John and Israel Glines Society, often abbreviated as J.I.G. Society, was founded in July of 2013. The society gets its name from two brothers, John and Israel Glines, who hunted and trapped in Coos County, New Hampshire in the 18th century. John built a camp on a river named after him in Whitefield, while his brother, Israel, camped on the river named for him in Jefferson. Our goal is the create an “online museum” for the people of the New Hampshire, focusing on areas of the White Mountains but is not limited to these areas of New Hampshire. The goal will be fulfilled by creating different websites, each pertaining to a certain area of New Hampshire. This historical society will be completely online for now. This website that you are viewing now will be the main site for our society where you can access a page with all of our sites listed. This website will also be where we post updates about new websites and any other updates about our society. We hope you enjoy your stay on the Online Museum of the John and Israel Glines Society.
