Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 7pm -- Join us for Round 2!
The wildly fun and original History Games return on November 3rd. The evening will be filled with mystery, games, and competition once again as teams battle for the coveted History Games trophy. Doors open at 6:30pm, and the event begins at 7pm and takes place this year in the Lower Mill in Rollinsford, NH.
For this round of Games, the Old Berwick Historical Society takes guests back to the year 1988, as the fictitious Salmon Falls Cuties celebrate their club’s anniversary with a party for their “friends and families”. Guests of the ladies will be treated to a memorable time-traveling tour of the old mill to interact with some of the forgotten people and history of the Salmon Falls Manufacturing Company. Thrown into the hysterical historical mix is a crime that requires guests’ help to be solved.
“This year we were looking to include our neighbors from Salmon Falls Village, now Rollinsford. The mills in both towns created an industry for the area, and we wanted to highlight that story,” said Games coordinator, Nicole St. Pierre. “Salmon Falls Village and South Berwick were really one big community when the mills were open. Even now, our kids go to school together, play sports together, and more. We thought it was a great way to introduce South Berwick to Rollinsford’s history.”
Teams earn points at each stop of the evening by solving puzzles and playing games. Guests can earn extra points by bringing a picture of themselves from the 80’s, by bringing a Jello mold, and/or by dressing up in 80’s clothes. The evening includes food and drink, and concludes with dancing to classic 80’s music. Doors will close at 11pm.
Tickets are $40 each, and available below and at the shop A Little Something on Paul Street in South Berwick.
