Family of Herbert Welsh Asks Okemo to Stop Advertising with their Legacy

Descendants of Herbert Welsh, the father of land conservation on Mount Sunapee, responded to the use of the “Welsh family heritage” by Okemo/Mount Sunapee Resort in a letter published below.

Their objections were covered this past week in the Union Leader and Concord Monitor.

The Welsh letter closes with:

My great-grandfather concluded many a letter with the powerful salutation, “to a more glorious Mount Sunapee.” Your abuse of our family heritage is anything but glorious, and your plans are antithetical to what he and so many others worked so hard to protect.
