It’s time for a Journey once again—this year’s theme for the Hike through History. And the Old Berwick Historical Society is heading into our most exciting time of the year. Read more about this year's Hike here.
First, in preparation for the Hike, South Berwick Central School third grade classes visited the Counting House during the first two weeks in May. Then, on May 25, hundreds of Central School children and Marshwood Middle School eighth graders will visit the Counting House and many other historic sites on the Hike through History.
