An Native American Harvest

DRHS Invites you to a Native American Harvest.

In conjunction with Deep River Family Day activities on Saturday, September 16, 2017 the Deep River Historical Society will present an exhibition at the Stone House, 245 Main St. Deep River. This is a guided exhibition titled Native American Harvest and will be available for viewing from 9-2 and again on Sunday, September 17, 2017 from 2-4 pm during the regular open hours of the Stone House.

Richard Kalapos, trustee of DRHS and town Historian, will be discussing the relationship that the Native Americans had with their environment and how the forest, waterways and sea provided them with all their wants. Through their relationship with nature, they felt as one with surroundings. The forest was, in todays terms, their grocery store, hardware store and pharmacy.

This is a multigenerational program so drop by and bring your whole family to explore the heritage of our first Americans. Come and learn about the unique relationship they had with their world and learn about the foods that nourished them.
