Serving Their Country at the Wentworth House
In honor of American veterans, past and present, the Colonel Paul Wentworth House will host Serving Their Country, a day-long living history tribute to American soldiers on Veterans Day, Sunday, November 11.
Visit the historic Wentworth House in Rollinsford for a day of displays and living-history demonstrations illustrating the lives and stories of America’s citizen-soldiers from the colonial period through modern times. Historical reenactors with carefully researched and period-accurate uniforms and equipment will portray soldiers from the colonial and Revolutionary eras, the Civil War, the world wars, and the Vietnam War.
In addition, to mark the centennial of the end of World War I, the presenters will march to the Martel-Roberge American Legion Hall on Foundry Street for an 11 am ceremony commemorating the exact hour and day of the armistice which ended that conflict in 1918.
The event will run from 10 am to 4 pm at the Wentworth House on Water Street in Rollinsford. Admission is $5 for the general public; free for veterans and active duty personnel, children, and ARCH members.
The circa 1701 Wentworth House is maintained by the Association for Rollinsford Culture and History (ARCH) as an educational and cultural center for the community. For more information about this and other events at the Wentworth House, consult the ARCH website at paulwentworthhouse.org.
