About this event

Conflict and Community: The Cathance Mill, 1760-1790 led by 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.

Participants meet at starting point; driving directions and parking information provided upon registration. Please check-in with tour leader at least 10 minutes prior to tour time.

Tours are limited to 20 unless otherwise noted. PHC maintains a waiting list for each tour in case of cancellations. Most tours are 75-90 minutes, though tours outside of downtown may go slightly longer. Please dress accordingly for the weather and wear sturdy shoes, sunblock, and/or bug spray as needed.

TICKET SALES END AT 3:30 THE DAY BEFORE THE TOUR. If a tour is sold out, you may add your information to the waitlist and we will contact you if a ticket becomes available.
