Cellar Hole Field Trip

Saturday, April 27, 2024 10:00 am- 1:00 pm - in person

Exploring Cellar Holes in Chatham, NH. in person field day

LOCATION: Chatham Historical Society at 1061 Main Road, Chatham, NH

Genevieve Everett, White Mountain National Forest Service Archaeological Technician

We will walk to explore cellar holes along Toad Hill Road. The walking will be on the dirt road, with elevation change, and short forays into the woods to view the cellar holes and hear what history is known about the families that called this area home.

The morning will begin with a classroom portion at the Chatham Historical Society at 1061 Main Road, Chatham, NH, where Everett will give a presentation of the laws that protect heritage sites on the White Mountain National Forest, as well as the process of becoming a volunteer to adopt a cellar hole. Then we will carpool to the start of the walk.

Participants should wear good walking shoes or boots and bring water and a lunch – we will stop for a short picnic at one of the cellar holes. The event will end around 1 PM.

REGISTRATION: This event is limited to ten participants, with a preference given to Chatham Historical Society members, so please RSVP as soon as possible, to, or call 603-694-3388. We will keep a waiting list if there are abundant responses.
