Did you ever wonder what living in America was like 100 - 200 years ago? Come experience it at the 5th Annual Living History Event in Hillsborough.

Try your hand at panning for real gold, help throw a pot on the potter's wheel, treat the kids to one of the Children’s Historical Activities, be a student in a real 1800s
schoolhouse, cast your own pewter spoon, press some cider and more...

Immerse yourself while the cannons roar, a Cavalry charges down a field, you watch a battle in the woods and falcons fly for prey.

Meet Abe Lincoln, Mark Twain, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Betsy Ross and enjoy Mr. Potter, NH Magician. These are just some of the exciting and interesting things to do on four action-packed sites all for one modest ticket price over two exciting days. Come join us, you'll be glad you did.
