NH Humanities Secrets of Cellar Holes
June 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Northern New England is full of reminders of past lives: stone walls, old foundations, a century-old lilac struggling to survive as the forest reclaims a once-sunny dooryard. What forces shaped settlement, and later abandonment, of these places? Adair Mulligan explores the rich story to be discovered in what remains behind. See how one town has set out to create an inventory of its cellar holes, piecing together the clues in the landscape. Such a project can help landowners know what to do if they have archaeological sites on their land and help stimulate interest in a town’s future through its past.
This presentation will take place in the Winnipesaukee Room on the second floor of the Carriage House. Advance reservations are not required.
This presentation is made possible by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities: Humanities To Go program.
