Fashionable Folks at the Wentworth House

From the corsets and crinolines of the Victorian age to the streamlined styles of the Roaring Twenties, women’s fashions were dramatically transformed. “Fashionable Folks: What New Englanders Wore,” a new exhibit at Rollinsford’s historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House, tracks the many changes in taking place in women’s clothing over the course of a century.

Featuring over 40 garments dating from the 1830s through the 1920s, the exhibit is open for visitors from 1 to 4 pm on Sundays until mid-October. Guided tours of the house are also available. Admission is by donation ($5 is suggested), and is free for ARCH members and children under 16.

Maintained by the Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH), the circa 1701 Wentworth House is located on Water Street in Rollinsford, NH and hosts living history events, exhibits, and school and youth programs. 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.

Rollinsford Hydroelectric Project

On behalf of the Town of Rollinsford, New Hampshire, Consolidated Hydro New Hampshire, LLC (CHNH) is preparing to relicense the Rollinsford Hydroelectric Project (Project) with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission). CHNH, a subsidiary of Enel Green Power North America (EGPNA), operates and manages the Project under a lease agreement with the Town of Rollinsford. The Project (FERC No. 3777) is located on the Salmon Falls River, which establishes the border between the States of New Hampshire (NH) and Maine (ME), in Strafford County, NH and York County, ME. The FERC license expires on August 31, 2021.

In accordance with the Commission’s regulations, on August 31, 2016, the Town of Rollinsford commenced the relicensing process by filing its Notice of Intent (NOI) to file an application for license and Pre- Application Document (PAD) for the Project. Also, pursuant to the Commission’s regulations, the Town of Rollinsford requested the Commission’s approval to use the Traditional Licensing Process (TLP) for this Project.

The purpose of this email is to distribute copies of those documents to potentially interested federal and state resource agencies, Indian tribes, non-governmental organizations, and members of the public.  A copy of the NOI, PAD, and TLP request is available for download at the FERC website using the following FERC eLibrary link: http://elibrary.FERC.gov/idmws/file_list.asp?accession_num=20160831-5132.
