Thom(p)son (Re)union - 2001 - Odiorne Point

Saturday, we left early and drove the inland route to Odiorne Point, New Hampshire. This is where David Thomson and Amias Colle first settled, before they moved to Boston Harbor and Thompson Island. David's land grant included 6000 acres here, Odiorne Point to Strawberry Bank.

It was overcast in the morning. We had come the Russell B. Tobey Visitor Center of the Seacoast Science Center at Odiorne Point State Park for Gen Frasier's talk on David Thomson's Scottish origins. Before and after the talk we walked around the grounds and toured the museum.

Partway through Gen's talk the power went out. She kept going, and it was a good thing, since eventually we were asked to leave due to security policy at the Science Center.

This is the coast-side of the Visitor Center.
