Outdoor New England is looking for a Historical Research Intern to help tell the greater story of Mill City Park. Franklin once lived as a booming mill town with the twin rivers driving the force behind it's success. Mill City Park hopes to use these same rivers for a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly type of success, and needs your help to do that.
- Research the history of the site for Mill City Park in Franklin NH. This would include the 3 mills and dam, collecting documentation of the history, photos, what were they and why they stop functioning.
- Look at historical data about what was the river like before it was damned up? What's the current state of the river--has been much altered and not eligible to be a scenic River designation. Now it has rebar, concrete, invasive species, architectural remnants--the whitewater park will be putting it closer to its natural state, cleaning it up. Prove the case and value of the park and look at other examples.
