MERCHANTS OF MAIN STREET | remembering newmarket's past

SPECIAL WEEKEND HOURS
FOR THE HERITAGE FESTIVAL:
Open Sat (9/22), 12–5 and Sun (9/23), 11–3
RETRACE THE HISTORY OF NEWMARKET's industrious past
While the mills certainly took
center stage in the growth of Newmarket, they were, by no means, the only
game in town. Take a stroll back through time and learn about the commerce
and industry of Newmarket’s past: listen to memories about past merchants,
shared with us by Newmarket natives; search among the townspeople in
enlarged photographs for a familiar face; and marvel at how the downtown
has changed over time—or, in some cases, has remained much the same.
Presented by the
Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance
(LACA), the exhibit will showcase a combination of images and artifacts from
the archives of the
New Market Historical Society, and feature the ever-popular folkloric art
of Newmarket native Edouard Langlois and beautiful, mixed media interpretations
of historic photos by Shaune
McCarthy. A wide selection of handmade jewelry and handbags by
several LACA artisans will also be available for purchase.
Admission is Free; $3
Proceeds to benefit the New Market Historical Society and the Lamprey Arts
& Culture Alliance.
