Old Home Week at Bow, N. H.

People and Patriot

The citizens of Bow started the twentieth century Old Home week celebration with one of the largest bonfires in the state on Pleasant View hill—named on the first eve of Old Home week, 1901, in honor of the Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, being close to her birthplace. The attendance was very large, people from Norfolk, Va., New York, Boston and its suburbs, Concord, and citizens of Bow. A large number came in carriages. At ten o'clock a vocal concert was rendered by colored persons from the South, and others assisted. The programme concluded with an old-fashioned sweet corn roast, which was enjoyed by all.
