Piscataqua Company Encampment in South Berwick

Piscataqua Company Encampment in South Berwick

 

South Berwick, Maine- Old Berwick Historical Society will be hosting the Piscataqua Company reenactors on Saturday, June 12 from 10am-4pm at Counting House Park, next door to their Counting House Museum at 2 Liberty Street.

A presentation of Harmon’s Company of Snowshoemen, this historical encampment represents the settlers along the Piscataqua River, 1623-1640, including Dover, Portsmouth, NH, “Old” Berwick, York, and Kittery, ME. Unlike the Pilgrims at Plymouth and the Boston area under the Massachusetts Bay Company, these were not Puritans seeking freedom to worship as they wanted, they were men under contract by landed proprietors to establish economically viable communities. There was a focus on fishing, salting, lumbering, and trade. Part of their responsibility included defense of the communities. The Piscataqua Company attempts to remember those men and women who first settled New Hampshire and Maine.

 

The society’s Counting House Museum will be open during the encampment from 10am-4pm. Encampment and Museum admission is free to the public, donations are gratefully accepted. Social distancing measures and masks are still encouraged.

 

This season, the Counting House Museum will be open June-October on Saturdays from 1pm-4pm and by appointment. Admission is free. More information is available by calling 207-384-0000 or at www.oldberwick.org.
