Candlelight Stroll | Strawbery Banke

  December has arrived – though it hasn’t brought any snow with it yet.  I went for my first ever Candlelight Stroll at Strawbery Banke this year and enjoyed their period presentation of the various eras of many homes on the grounds.  There were musicians, cooks, tin smiths, wives, kids, all sorts of interesting things…

The Gundalow

The Gundalow Company is in the process of constructing a new gundalow on the grounds of Strawbery Banke.  The original gundalow has educated thousands of people about the vessel and its role and history in moving goods on the Piscataqua River to surrounding towns.  The existing gundalow, however, cannot serve as a floating classroom because…

At Strawbery Banke

On what is probably the most rugged day of winter we’ve seen in quite some time (mostly due to the fact that at one point I overheard up to a total of 3 feet of snow by Thursday morning…and nobody is ready to mentally cope with more than a few more inches at this point)…I…
