Sat. Mar. 30 - History Hike: Lover's Brook Farm
Pond Road, South Berwick -
10:00 - 11:30 am
OBHS historian Wendy Pirsig will lead a walk along the preserved section of Pond Road that was once the main highway for travelers by horse and foot. Come stroll past the Hobbs House, the historic home on Lover’s Brook Farm, and discover a lost intersection on the old Portland Turnpike. Imagine your stagecoach pulling up to a nearby tavern with hungry, weary passengers. The brook was the site of an Indian attack in 1724. In 1785 a Thompson Tavern stood nearby.
