Sports History Talks at the Wentworth House

Baseball fans and bicycling enthusiasts who are interested in the histories of their respective sports won’t want to miss two up-coming talks at Rollinsford’s historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House. Both lectures are being presented in connection with “Neighborhood Entertainments: New Englanders at Play,” the exhibit on early New England sports and recreation currently on view at the Wentworth House.Zip Zamarchi will present an illustrated talk about penny farthings, bone shakers and other forerunners of the modern bicycle on Tuesday, July 26. Mr. Zamarchi is a cycling historian and an avid collector of antique bicycles and bicycling memorabilia. Several items from his extensive collection are included in the exhibit.

On Tuesday, August 9, Brian Sheehy will describe the game of baseball the way it was played by early teams such as the Portsmouth Rockinghams and the Newburyport Clamdiggers: no gloves, underhand pitching, and woolen knickerbocker uniforms. In addition to being an historian of the game, Mr. Sheehy plays base ball in the style of the 1800s with the Essex Vintage Base Ball Club.

Both talks will be presented at 7 pm, and the doors will open at 6 pm for visitors who would like to tour the exhibit prior to the presentation. Light refreshments will be served afterwards. Admission to the presentations and the exhibit is $5 for the general public and free for members of ARCH.

Domestic Life at the Wentworth House

At Home in the 18th Century at the Wentworth House

An 18th century New England household will come to life at a two-day living history event at the historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House in Rollinsford, NH from 11 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday, June 18 and 19.

Re-enactors in period clothing will demonstrate a wide range of domestic activities showcasing everyday life in a colonial home, including gardening, hearth cooking and housekeeping chores, as well as games and pastimes. Saturday’s highlight will be a demonstration of colonial foodways from the hearth to the table, illustrating how food was prepared, served and enjoyed in the 18th century. Demonstrators will also show how early Americans “slept tight” by making a straw-filled mattress and roping a bedstead. Visitors will be welcome to join in some indoor and outdoor games which were popular in colonial America.

Located on Water Street in Rollinsford, the Wentworth House is maintained by the Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH) as an educational and cultural center. Admission to this event is $5 for adults, and free for children and ARCH members. For more information, consult the ARCH website at www.paulwentworthhouse.org or on Facebook at The Colonel Paul Wentworth House.

In the past few years the transfer station has experienced some unfortunate incidents associated with the disposal of domestic animal waste in the trash compactor.  In order to safeguard public health and well-being, the Select Board is proposing the following amendment to the transfer station ordinance (93-1).  The amendment clarifies that only domestic animal waste is allowed in the compactor and only as part of a bag of solid waste.  No singular containers of domestic animal waste, capped or uncapped, can be disposed of in the trash compactor.
Proposed amendment to Ordinance 93-1

    2. The disposal of animal waste shall be limited to domesticated, household pets and must be properly contained within a bag with other household waste. Waste that is not properly contained will not be accepted.   Disposing of a singular container of animal waste, either capped or uncapped, will be considered a violation.
