Summer with the Past programs are open to children age 7 through 11. Each week-long session will be held at a different historic site where the participants will be introduced to its unique history a different historic site where the participants will be introduced to the site's unique history and enjoy a variety of art projects and games popular in the 18th and 19th Centuries. These activities vary depending on the historic site. A highlight for each of the three programs this year will be the making of a fire-fighting bucket styled on those used by fire-fighting companies of the later 18th Century and early 19th Century.

Louise Miller, LCHA Education Coordinator, is the director of Summer with the Past. She brings to the program an extensive background in museum work and school programs built on American history, particularly daily life in the 18th and early 19th centuries. During the rest of the year, Louise is working with mid-coast schools to enhance awareness of LCHA’s three historic sites and the roles they played in the development of the Lincoln County we know today.
