Charles presents Chase House at Great Bay Discovery Center


On Wednesday January 19th at noon (snow date will be the 21st), the Great Bay Discovery Center is hosting a Brown Bag Lunch Lecture with Strawbery Banke Museum’s Staff Archaeologist, Sheila Charles as speaker. Her talk will focus on the latest excavations of the outlying buildings on the site of the Chase House. The house constructed ca. 1762 was the first restored structure at the Strawbery Banke Museum and was the home of merchant Stephen Chase and his family for most of the 19th century. The dig has been conducted over the past three summers with many artifacts and archaeological discoveries made that will be used for public education and interpretation.

The program will be held in the Hugh Gregg Coastal Conservation Center and is free with no registration required. Drinks and dessert will be available so bring a lunch and join us for this lecture. For more information on this event or other programs, please call the Center at 603-778-0015. The Center is located at 89 Depot Road on the Greenland/Stratham town line just off Route 33. It is the educational facility for the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and is funded by NOAA and administered by NH Fish and Game Department.
