Lamprey River History

The importance of history along the Lamprey was a key factor in the designation of the river into the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. Human presence along the river goes back more than 10,000 years. Over time, the river has provided many resources, including fresh water, food, raw materials, power for mills, and more recently, recreational opportunites. The Lamprey River Advisory Committee has a video, "River Story: The Lamprey through History", that ties much of the river's rich history together in one package.
