Howard Mansfield: The Habit of Turning the World Upside Down

Join Howard Mansfield at Gibson’s Bookstore Wednesday night as he discusses his new book The Habit of Turning the World Upside Down. He writes about architecture, preservation, and history in his quest to understand the soul of American places.

“During the past few years, while reporting on citizens fighting natural gas pipelines and transmission towers planned to cut right across their homes, I saw the emotional toll of these projects. They got under the skin. This was about more than kilowatts, powerlines, and pipelines. Something in this upheaval felt familiar. I began to realize that I was witnessing an essential American experience: the world turned upside down. And it all turned on one word: property”

Asserting Freedom: A Tour of Cellar Holes & Sites in Hancock, NH

Hancock, a quintessential New England village, defies the march of time. At first glance, this little village seems to be slumbering away quite peacefully. However, buried just beneath the Colonial veneer of this seemingly all-white town is a vibrant history of early Black settlers who worked, bought land, built homes, challenged the church and struggled for freedom. Today, all that is left are the abandoned artifacts of that early life: their roads, their walls, their cellar holes and their scant records.

Hear about the anti-slavery riot that occurred in Hancock. Discover the stories of Jack Ware a former enslaved man and members of the Due family and hear how Hanna Due defied the church on this part-walking/part-driving tour with Eric Aldrich as you explore the holes their homes left behind. Eric will also have original documents for you to see. 

$25 per person

 

Important Notes for this tour:

  1. Maximum people for this tour is 25.
  2. This is a part driving part walking tour.
  3. A bus will meet you at the Town Office in Hancock.
  4. Town Office Building at 50 Main St, in Hancock.
  5. Parking is available behind the Town Office.
  6. Please wear sensible walking shoes for this tour. No heels or sandals. You will have a 1/2 mile walk to see old cellar holes.
