From NH-107A in South Hampton, head south on Jewell Street. A small parking area with kiosk will be on your right.


Visitors can enjoy the short stroll to the Powwow River to access paddling, fishing, or simply to enjoy the view from one of the Leopold benches.

The Powwow River Woodland is a 7.3-acre forest featuring shoreline along the Powwow River which flows from Danville to the Merrimack River in Amesbury, Massachusetts. It is located near the Jewell Town District which encompasses a colonial-era industrial village that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The river once served as a power source for successive Jewell Family members beginning in 1687 when Thomas Jewell settled here. At one time, a grist mill, fulling mill, bog iron works, and more than one sawmill were located there.

Other Information

Sisters Priscilla Coffin and Susan True inherited the land from their mother and donated it to the Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire to honor their parents. The Town of South Hampton provided funding from the Conservation Fund to pay the transaction costs and the long-term management of this land and holds deed restrictions ensuring it remains open space.
