LOOKING BACK AT FARMING AND FARM LIFE IN ORFORD
Historian Art Pease will give an overview of the animals, crops, methods and roles of farm folks, with emphasis the early years through the late 19th century. Written accounts, both from Orford and Northern New England in general, serve as the basis of this talk, with 1850 and 1870 Census data providing details from which conclusions can be drawn.
Join us for the special program at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 25th at Rivendell Academy’s Multipurpose Room.
Please be sure to visit the new Farming History Exhibit at the Town Hall Heritage Center in Orfordville.
