LINCOLN, N.H. (AP) New Hampshire’s Kancamagus Highway turns 50 in August, and the state is looking for people who remember its construction and early days.

The celebration of the Kanc, as many people call it, is planned for Aug. 14, when visitors can learn about the 34-mi. (54.7 km) highway that winds through the White Mountains and attracts hordes of tourists during foliage season each fall.

The U.S. Forest Service, White Mountains Attractions and local organizations are coordinating the celebration. The Lincoln public librarian is coordinating the historical part of the program.
