Event to Focus on Lake Sunapee History
July 12, 2017
On Thursday, July 20 at 7:00 p.m. the New Hampshire Boat Museum will host an illustrated talk called “Boating on Lake Sunapee: The Lake Sunapee Regattas 1892-1957.” The lecture is free of charge and refreshments will be served.
The talk will be given by Barbara Chalmers of the Sunapee Historical Society. In her presentation, Chalmers will look at the Lake Sunapee Regatta Association that sponsored annual multi-day summer celebrations. These events included water sports, canoeing, and rowing competitions, sailboat and motorized boat races, and the Grand Illumination. During her talk she will also tell the history of boating, passenger steamboats and the development of Lake Sunapee as a summer resort.
