Cultural resources are reflect values that we place on our natural resources. NH's natural resources provide many benefits to the state's population, such as a variety of scenic vistas and recreational oportunities. These are also economic benefits regarding the out-of-state tourists that are drawn to these natural attractions (skiers, hikers, leaf peepers, fishermen, hunters, etc.) In historic and archaeologic times, people used natural resources for living and subsisting. Remnants of those times are an important part of the historic record and many warrant protection as sites of interest.
