Crosscut: the Mills, Logging, and Life on the Androscoggin

RebeccaRule_Outhouse
Rebecca Rule

Saturday, October 17, 1:00 pm.

Using oral histories, Rebecca Rule recreates the voices of North Country people and uses new and vintage photos to tell the story of logging, the Berlin Mills, and life in the Androscoggin Valley, from the beginnings of the logging industry in the 1800s, through the boom years of the Brown Company and subsequent mill owners, and on to the demolition of the stacks in 2007. Audience members will be invited to share their own stories and discuss the logging and paper industries and the special place north of the notches. John Rule assists with a PowerPoint presentation of photos and information from his own research into the history of the Brown Company as an archivist at the New Hampshire Historical Society.

This program made possible by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.
