In South Berwick, you can go hiking, biking or picnicking at Vaughn Woods State Park or paddle along the Salmon Falls River.

History

This community has had a diverse economy that included textile and shoe manufacturing, farming and fishing. During its heyday, a boat called a "gundalow" was built to haul goods from the smaller inland rivers to the Piscataqua River. You can see a replica of the gundalow during the summer at various wharfs throughout the region. You can also visit the historic homes of author Sarah Orne Jewett and shipping merchant Jonathan Hamilton.
