July 31, 2022  1:30PM – Conflict and Community: The Cathance Mill, 1760-1790 with James Tanzer

Against the stunning backdrop of the Cathance, learn the stories of the fascinating people–both enslaved and free–who lived and labored around the double-sawmill at the “head of the tide” in the last half of the 18th century. Tour leader James Tanzer shares how petty infighting, unspeakable loss, deep-seated resilience, and quiet grace marked the lives of those who called this place home. Tour is limited to 20 people. Starting Point is Head of Tide Park, 235 Cathance Road, Topsham. General admission: $12, PHC members: $8. Advance registration required by Saturday, July 30 at noon: https://phc-walking-cathancemill.eventbrite.com or by calling (207) 729-6606.
