By Saco River Community Television

The Gunpowder Mills of Gorham & Windham, Maine tells the fascinating story of one of 19th Century Maine’s most productive wartime industries. Produced in collaboration with Gorham Community Access Media and based on a book written by longtime USM chemistry professor Dr. Maurice Whitten.

The mills and surrounding river are a beautiful place to visit and an amazing historical exhibit and are an amazing example of how history and habitat can coexist.

This video is an excellent production of our sister station Saco River Community Television.
