Join us on Beach Plum Farm in Ogunquit, a 22-acre site on the Ogunquit River where remnants of a New England saltwater farm can be seen, along with Moody’s Stream, marshland, wildlife habitat, and beach plum bushes. Archaeologist Tad Baker recounts the French and Native raid of 1703 that devastated the village of Wells and the century-long contest of faith and allegiance that defined the Piscataqua frontier. *Optional tea and cookies reception following the walk inside GWRLT offices (11:30 - noon).
Corresponding Lecture: Lecture February 23, 7:30 p.m.: Ann Little of Colorado State University relates the eye-opening story of a Puritan girl from Wells whose life was thrice remade by three diverging cultures that dominated colonial America—English, Wabanaki and French. *All OBHS/GWRLT History Hikes include a corresponding lecture. This lecture will happen 1-2 weeks ahead of the hike.
