Event Details

NH Kidventures Highlighted Location: Woodman Museum

Learn about the early settlers, their strange laws and about the punishments that took place. With all new material, this historical (and sometimes hysterical) production will include 22 scenes of Dover history that will come to life during the hour-and-a-half long tour through the grounds of the museum.

See an early grist mill come alive and learn about the fire that destroyed another Dover mill. Meet a civil war soldier who fought at Gettysburg and Captain William Flagg whose crew captured a British cannon and supplied a captured bell to one of Dover’s earliest schools.  There will also be “President” Mary Dow and Opera star Nellie Brown Mitchell, and the return of Dover’s own Marilla Ricker, who ran for Governor even before women could vote.  Just what is a Gookin? … Come to the museum and find out.  These are just some of the many characters you’ll meet that will tell of their notable events in the second annual Night at the Woodman Museum production!
