  • Civil War Encampment at the Wentworth House


    The Civil War will come to life on Saturday, July 31 when members of the 1st New Hampshire Light Artillery, a Civil War reenactment group, will be encamped at Rollinsford’s historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House. The 1st New Hampshire Light Artillery was recruited from the Manchester area and saw combat from August 1862 through May 1865, including the battles of Second Bull Run, Antietam, Gettysburg, and Cold Harbor.


    Visitors are invited to visit the camp from 10 am to 4 pm. Artillery drills and firings will take place at 11 am, 1 pm and 2 pm. Tours of the inside of the Wentworth House will also be available. Admission to the event is $5 for the general public; 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).  For more information about this and other events at the Wentworth House, consult the ARCH website at www.paulwentworthhouse.org or Facebook at The Colonel Paul Wentworth House.
