LIVING IN THE COLONEL’S HOUSE
Experience a colonial New Hampshire household in the years prior to the American Revolution at Living in the Colonel’s House, a living history event at Rollinsford’s historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House on Saturday and Sunday, May 4 and 5.
It is spring, and the men, women, and children of the Wentworth household are tending to everyday tasks: cleaning house, preparing meals from the hearth to the table, working in the gardens, sewing, and laundering clothing. Historical re-enactors in 18th century dress will portray the Wentworth family and their neighbors, and will describe their daily lives, share the latest town gossip, and discuss the growing tension with Britain.
The event will run from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, May 4, and from 10 am to 2 pm on Sunday, May 5. Admission is $5 for adults; free for children and ARCH members.
The circa 1701 Wentworth House is located on Water Street in Rollinsford, NH and is maintained by the nonprofit Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH).
