Hannah Davis Grave Site  

Jaffrey, NH 03452

Hannah Davis (1784-1863) made and sold the country's first wooden bandboxes, covered in colorful papers and used for jewelry, hats and even suitcases. Davis chose the trees to be logged and invented a foot powered machine which would slice thin sections. "Aunt Hannah" drove her wagon to nearby mills towns to sell the boxes - featured in Godley's Ladies Book - to the women workers.
