The Friday May 11, 2018 issue of the Sandwich Enterprise had an article on an old “Portland Cutter“ sleigh that had been rescued some years ago and is now being restored by archaeologist and restoration carpenter David Wheelock.

 The sleigh was in pieces when found.  The restoration is nearly complete and the sleigh will hopefully be on display in the ‘Mill‘ during Autumn Gathering.
