MapGeo Property Info Tool

The Select Board has recently subscribed to MapGeo, a property and mapping tool hosted by the Strafford Regional Planning Commission.  It allows a user to view property card information, along with other information related to zoning, land use, natural resources, transportation projects, and socioeconomic factors in Rollinsford and the region. Use the “Search” button to find properties by owner name, address, or parcel ID, or click a parcel on the map to get its property card record. Additional, click the “Themes” button to view the available data layers, and toggle each on and off.   There is a HELP function to answer some basic questions.
The Select Board will be hosting an information session with trained SRPC staff sometime this winter or early Spring.   We encourage you to check this out and  come to the info session with your questions.

Snowshoe Rangers at the Wentworth House

Step back in time at Rollinsford’s historic Colonel Paul Wentworth House on Saturday and Sunday, January 13 and 14, and meet Captain John Harmon’s Snowshoe Company of Rangers, a group of historical reenactors who portray the soldiers who patrolled the New England frontier during the 1740s and 1750s.

Snowshoe companies were formed to patrol the colonial frontier during the long winters and protect the northern settlements from attack by the French and their Native American allies.  Members of Harmon’s Company will be in residence at the Wentworth House and will demonstrate the use of flintlock muskets and traditional snowshoes, plus the clothing, equipment and tactics used by the frontier militia.

Visitors may also take a tour of the house; observe gunsmith Steve Woodman and horner Chuck Walker as they practice their trades; warm up by the hearth and watch food being prepared in 18th century fashion; and learn about other aspects of winter life in colonial New England.

The public is invited to visit the Wentworth House on Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm, and again on Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm.   Admission is $5 for adults; the event is free for 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 Facebook at The Colonel Paul Wentworth House.
