NASHUA - Area residents have a chance this week to view up close the city’s historic Nashua River Gatehouse, an 1886 building in Mine Falls Park restored over a period of years by an extracurricular middle school program called the Student Historic Preservation Committee.

A tour that runs from 8 a.m.–2 p.m. on Thursday, July 17, was scheduled to accommodate visitors who can’t make the once-a-month Mine Falls Park Trail Days open houses, according to Greg Andruskevich, chairman of the Mine Falls Park Advisory Committee.

Andruskevich and committee member Pamela Anderson will conduct the tour. No registration is needed and there is no charge.

The Gatehouse was a vital link in the operation of the many textile mills that flourished in 19th and 20th century Nashua. The mechanics that operated the four gates are visible during the tours.
