Farmers cultivated the rich soil on the intervales The Boston, Concord & Montreal Railroad diagonally crossed the town With abundant water power from the Baker River, Wentworth developed into a lumber producing town with nine sawmills But disaster struck on August 6, 1856, when dams on the Upper and Lower Baker ponds in Orford breached during a flood, releasing a wall of water down Pond Brook to the Baker River It raced three miles 48 km down the steep, rocky channel, then undermined and washed away Wentworth's riverside mills, houses, barns, sheds and roads It widened the river by nearly 90 feet 27 meters3
