Powow River, New England

Powow river has its principal source in Great and Country ponds in Kingston, N.H., and passes over the S.W. part of East Kingston into South Hampton; thence into Amesbury, Mass., where it turns E. into South Hampton again, and returns into Amesbury, falling into the Merrimack between Salisbury and Amesbury. There are several falls in this river; those in Amesbury being the most remarkable, the water falling 100 feet in the distance of 50 rods and presenting, with the variety of machinery and dams, houses and scenery on the falls, one of the most interesting views in the country.
