Wentworth House Event: Winter Life in Colonial New England

Experience a colonial living history weekend with Captain John Harmon’s Snowshoe Company of Rangers at the historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House in Rollinsford, NH on Saturday and Sunday, January 14 and 15.

Reenactors portraying the winter rangers who patrolled the New England frontier during the 1740s and 1750s will demonstrate the use of flintlock muskets and traditional snowshoes, plus the clothing, equipment and tactics used by the frontier militia during conflicts with the French and their Native American allies in the mid-1700’s.

The public is invited to meet the snowshoe men on Saturday, January 14 from 10 am to 4 pm, and again on Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.  Interpreters in colonial attire will be on hand to demonstrate 18th century hearth cooking, crafts, board games and other recreational activities, and other aspects of winter life in colonial New England. Tours of the house will also be offered. A donation of $5 is suggested for adults; the event is free to children and ARCH members.

The circa 1701 Wentworth House is located on Water Street in Rollinsford and is maintained by the Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH).  For more information about this and other events at the Wentworth House, consult the ARCH website at paulwentworthhouse.org or on Facebook at The Colonel Paul Wentworth House.
