Public Safety Warning: Needles

RPD is reminding citizens should you come across a discarded hypodermic needle, do not touch it or remove it. So far this year we have had 4 calls to remove found needles. All four instances the needles were discarded along the roadside as if being tossed out a car window. To ensure a safe removal, please call the PD and we will remove and dispose of them.

Gatsby Garden Party at the Wentworth House

Nearly a century ago in the 1920s, the historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House in Rollinsford, NH hosted formal garden parties, concerts and teas, along with exhibits of colonial-era artifacts. The Roaring Twenties will return to the Wentworth House on Sunday, July 16 with a 1920s Gatsby Garden Party from 1 to 4 pm.

The public is invited to enjoy an afternoon of croquet on the lawn, other vintage indoor and outdoor pastimes, music, and exhibits of local artifacts from the 1920s. Guests may also tour the house and view “Fashionable Folks: What New Englanders Wore,” an exhibit of clothing from the 1830s to the 1920s. Light refreshments will be served but guests are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the garden. Jazz Age attire is encouraged but not required.

This event is hosted by the nonprofit Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH). Admission to the Gatsby Garden Party is $5 for the general public; ARCH members and children under 16 are free. For reservations or more information, call (603) 742-4747 or send an email to

Maintained by ARCH as an educational and cultural center for the community, the circa 1701 Wentworth House is located on Water Street in Rollinsford and hosts living history events, exhibits, and school and youth programs.
