Did you know that New Hampshire’s first water powered sawmill was built on the Exeter River in 1639? That the storied homes of Boston’s Beacon Hill have bricks made from Great Bay clay? That before 1800 there were mills making paper, gunpowder, cloth, wool, flour and even snuff all along the rivers of the Great Bay region?

The winter 2019 issue of Great Bay Matters explores this topic, a winter estuary almanac, and current programs and events. Download a copy now and sign up to receive future issues by mail.
