Old Berwick Maine Post Office ca. 1932
Crossing the bridge from Somersworth, N.H., into Berwick in the 1870s, one of the first buildings one would see in the business district was the Berwick Post Office built by Park & Harris.

One of the earliest buildings in the business district, it had two floors and was occupied by the post office and a grocery store.

In 1963 it became an IGA Market. After a short period, it became an apartment house and was destroyed by fire. As of 2013, this site was a park.

Ice Cutting in Maine

In the late 19th century and early 20th century the demand for ice was great. In addition to satisfying this demand, the harvesting of ice provided work for the local laborers during the lean winter months.

Berwick's source of ice as early as 1892 was two ponds covering several acres, situated on the Hall property located on what is now Rt 9. Once cut, the ice was brought by horses to the ice houses where it was stored in an insulating covering of saw dust. The saw dust was provided as a by-product from the local saw mills and another source of "off season" employment for local laborers. In addition to storage for local use, a portion of the ice harvest was forwarded on to the rail station in Somersworth New Hampshire for shipment to larger cities.

The Berwick Town Seal was adopted for use during Berwick’s 250th Anniversary celebrations of 1963. The seal was designed by Miss Jean Wilcox, an art major at the University of New Hampshire, at that time.
In the immediate foreground is the tall pine trees for which Pine Hill was named. According to legend, these magnificent trees were among the first things seen as one approached our community. Standing under the pines is an Indian Grave representing the earliest settlers of this community. In the background on the river bank is a saw mill representing the earliest industry of the Town. This mill is reported to be the first in this country and was located on or near the Salmon Falls River in the old Township of Newichawannock, now the Great Works section of South Berwick.

One year ago today March 1st, 2019 Captain Joel Barnes of the Berwick Fire Department succumbed to his injuries while battling a 4 alarm apartment building fire. His engine company arrived on scene and there were reports of people trapped in the building. Captain Barnes and one of his crew members entered the building to perform a search. While searching the apartment on fire Captain Barnes and his crew member found themselves stuck in the apartment because they were blocked by fire in the stairwell. At this point Captain Barnes knew what to do and that was protect his crew member from the heat and fire. Captain Barnes threw himself on top of his partner and saved his life. Joel went out of this world a true hero. In this past year we have done nothing but think about Joel and what he did last March. We will never forget Captain Barnes and what he did that day. RIP Captain until we meet again.

Tomorrow is Kim’s last day as Rec Director of Berwick. She has given this job everything for the past 16+ years and her shoes will be so hard to fill. She’s made sure to include everyone even when it was hard. “Lords and Ladies” night included so many more than just fathers and daughters because life isn’t always that simple and Kim knows that. Her energy and enthusiasm working with the kids at summer camp was contagious. Her job is listed as a “part time job” but I can guarantee she worked many more hours than that. Just wanted Kim to know there are so many people you appreciated you and will miss you. We all wish you good luck in your future endeavors!
