Kim Varney Chandler is a researcher, amateur genealogist, photographer, bird watcher, and dog lover. She is a two-time graduate of the University of New Hampshire (‘91, ‘96G), where her love of history began in Professor Charles Clark’s classroom in Horton Hall. She has been researching ever since.
Kim has spent a good amount of time in libraries and historical societies, tracing genealogy, reviewing property deeds, and reading history books. She hasn’t done much with this information except repeatedly share it with unsuspecting friends and family. Until now.
When not immersed in the past, Kim works as a high school counselor and commits an inordinate amount of time to volunteer work for a variety of organizations. She is a lifelong resident of New Hampshire except for two stints living south of the Mason-Dixon.
She lives in Hancock with her husband Marshell and Pemi the hiking therapy dog.
Kim has received extensive press coverage for Covered Bridges of New Hampshire, including New Hampshire Legends and Lore Podcast, and was featured on WMUR-TV’s New Hampshire Chronicle.
Kim is available for speaking engagements or presentations on Covered Bridges of New Hampshire. Programs can be tailored for a specific bridge (or bridges) as requested. Virtual programs are also available via Zoom.
