Conflict and Community: The Cathance Mill, 1760-1790 with James Tanzer
Against the stunning backdrop of Topsham’s Cathance River, 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. Hear how petty infighting, unspeakable loss, deep-seated resilience, and quiet grace marked the lives of those who called this place home. Starting Point is Head of Tide Park, 235 Cathance Road, Topsham.
