  • Exploring the Past on the Powwow

    Exploringthe Past on the Powwow

    June 27-29, 9AM-4PM each day. Suggested ages 9-14

    MEMBERS:$295      NONMEMBERS: $325

    A tributary of theMerrimack that originates in Danville, NH, the Powwow courses 22 miles beforeflowing through the center of Amesbury. In the early 17th century (andpresumably before that), Native Americans of the Pennacook tribe lived inthe area and used the Powwow River for transportation and fishing. When theEuropeans settled in what is now Amesbury, they were attracted to the Powwowfor the potential of waterpower from the falls (the river drops approximately90 feet through the center of Amesbury, providing ample waterpower for earlyindustrial development).

     

    From the AmesburyIndustrial History Center’s website: “WilliamOsgood built the first sawmill in 1640, and others followed. Of note was theaddition of a grain or grist mill, an oil mill (to press flax or sunflowerseeds), a fulling mill (to wash wool fabric), and even an iron works. By 1792there were at least five dams and an assemblage of over 14 mills that created athriving industrial community. Textile mills first appeared in 1812. By 1880,both sides of the river were lined with a nearly unbroken five-story wall ofbrick wall created by the mills built for the making of cloth. The mills usedwaterwheels and then later turbines connected to gear works, wooden and metalshafts and leather belts to provide the power needed to drive the machinery.There are a few features still standing that are part of Amesbury’s water-powerhistory.”

    Thisexploration will take us from Lowell’s Boat Shop up the Merrimack and into thePowwow River. LBS will partner with the Amesbury Industrial History Center toinvestigate as many remnants of the past as we can find. We’ll practicegrinding corn and possibly make our own pizza crust for lunch! (A pizza lunchwill be provided one afternoon, and is included in the cost of the program.)

    River Stories –Exploring the Merrimack

    July25-27, 9AM -4PM each day. Suggested ages9-14

    MEMBERS: $295      NONMEMBERS: $325

    Thetowns along the Merrimack River have a rich history. The lower Merrimack RiverValley was occupied by Algonquin tribes for hundreds and perhaps thousands ofyears before English colonists arrived in the mid-17th century; in fact, thename “Merrimack” means “rapid waters” in Algonquian, and describes ancientgeographic conditions in the lower river valley. Shell heaps near the presentRoute 1 highway bridge provide additional evidence of aboriginal occupation andriver use in the area near Lowell’s Boat Shop.

     

    Afterthe early 17th century, English colonists vied with the Native Americans foruse of the Merrimack River. They cleared the forests for farming, rafted logsdownstream for construction purposes and engaged in shipbuilding along theshores of the Merrimack. During this early colonial period, shipyards wereestablished downstream in Newbury near the river’s mouth and upstream at theconfluence of the Powwow and Merrimack Rivers.

     

    We’lltake a hike along nearby streets in Amesbury to find the homes of shipwrightsand sea captains, and row to explore remnants of structures along the river’sbank, such as the old landing for Carr’s Ferry.  Stories of the Merrimackwill be revealed as we search for evidence of the people that settled here longago.

  • Vikings on the Merrimack

    Vikings on theMerrimack

    August 15-17, 9AM -4PM each day.  Suggested ages 9-14.

    MEMBERS: $295      NONMEMBERS: $325

    TheVikings were a seafaring people who established themselves as shipbuilders,traders, explorers and warriors.  Fromthe late eighth through the early 11th century, they facilitated many changesthroughout the lands, from economics, to ship design, to warfare.  Many historians associate the name Vikingwith the Scandinavian term vikingr, a word for "pirate;"others believe the name was derived from the Old Norse word "vik,"meaning bay or creek. “Viking” was also used as a verb by the Scandinavianpeople for when the men traditionally took time out of their summers to go"a Viking."

     

    Joinus this summer as we go “a Viking” on the Merrimack.  Instead of the lightning-fast longshipstraditionally used for exploring and raiding the coasts, we will set out fromLowell’s Boat Shop in our fleet of Banks Dories, and row – as the Vikings oftendid – upriver to explore foreign lands. We’ll experience different aspects ofViking life, from planning raids on unsuspecting villages, to forging weaponry(from foam!) to use in battle on both land and sea, to identifying localmedicinal plants and foraging for wild edibles. 

     

    **NOTE:This session will allow kids who love a good “bailer war” to splash each otherto their hearts’ content, but it may not be suitable for kids who don’t enjoythat kind of activity.
