Historic Hillsborough Center

This year we are looking forward to being (mostly) back to normal with a full two day schedule!

We are offering a unique opportunity to learn about the native Indians (the Abenaki) who lived here for thousands of years before the European settlers arrived.

We are planning on some informative programs for adults, Abenaki music, building a traditional Abenaki wigwam, Abenaki games, story-telling for all ages. There will be exhibits of ways our local native plants can be used as trail food, medicine, dyes, etc. In addition, artisans will demonstrate basket making, weaving, spinning, broom making, pottery, whittling, as sell as early European crafts like black smithing and stone wall building. We expect a demo of antique baseball as well. Also, there will be tours of the lovely village, an auction, a cake walk, and we will finish with a parade.

Many of the events will be enjoyed by all ages.

Most events are outside and we will follow whatever state COVID requirements are in place at the time of the event.

Details for those wanting to volunteer to help out during the event will be added to the website soon.

If anyone wants to come demonstrate a craft or be a vendor of the kinds of things we did two hundred years ago, please contact us at info@historyalivenh.org.
