Summer with the Past

Discovering 18th and 19th Century Art, Crafts, & History

Open to children ages 7 through 11. On-site at the Chapman-Hall House in Damariscotta or the Lincoln County Museum & Old Jail in Wiscasset

Each week-long session introduces the children to the unique history of a particular site through a variety of art projects and games popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. In support of summer reading, each child will choose a book (chosen for its historical theme and/or its relevance to Maine) to borrow for the week.
