Isles of Shoals Historical and Research Association (ISHRA) September Weekend

Friday, September 11 to Sunday, September 13

Contact the Registrar

This ISHRA fall gathering brings together people who delight in exploring the history, lore and legends of the Isles of Shoals. Both new and old Shoalers will enjoy a weekend of casually organized activities. Explore Star Island from both a cultural and natural history viewpoint with nature strolls and Shoals history programs. Take a rowboat trip to Smuttynose Island or watch your friends make the harbor crossing from the comfort of a porch rocking chair. Along with guest speakers and social events, conferees will enjoy a traditional candlelight service in Gosport Chapel.
