Though the museum does not open for three weeks, staffers, contractors and volunteers were busy installing the first show at the Museum of the White Mountains on the campus of Plymouth State University. Housed in a former Methodist church on the edge of campus, the newly formed museum will show a yearlong exhibit that takes visitors on a tour through the mountains that reflects the evolution of visiting the mountains during the 19th century. The museum will be open to the public Feb. 23.
