HERE'S A PREVIEW OF OUR PLANS FOR 2019 -
TENTATIVE SPEAKERS WILL INCLUDE:
- Dave Miller on the development and route of the original Governor Wentworth Road from
Portsmouth to Wolfeboro. This route provided good access to the Wentworth Mansion,
which was intended to become the Capital Building of the Province of New Hampshire.
- Dave Warren on the history of the 63 feet long SWALLOW, Lake Winnipesaukee's most
picturesque steam yacht, built circa 1890 in Boston. Moved to Wolfeboro in 1897, the
yacht had a long history in private and charter service, until finally retired in 1973.
OTHER TENTATIVE PLANS ARE IN THE WORKS FOR:
- Driving tour of the Governor Wentworth Road.
- Tea Party with Re-enactors. Two sessions this year as event was oversubscribed in 2018.
- Special exhibits, changing during the season (no charge for members repeat visits).
- Craft Fair, bigger and better, at the Museum Complex in September.
