We’re off on a brand new magical history tour (with apologies to the Beatles) of well-known and little known Maine sites. Have you visited the Sarah Orne Jewett house in South Berwick or the Neal Dow home in Portland? When was the last time you visited the Outdoor Heritage Museum in Rangeley? All of these and many more places might be visited in this six week class beginning May 8th. Car pools will be arranged and walking will be included. We will pay a fee or donation to most of the sites. Stops for lunch will be arranged. This class will give you new ideas of places to take all those visitors who come to stay with you during summer in Maine and/or deepen your appreciation of our unique history. AND it will be fun!

Note: This class is open to previous participants and new adventurers.  Away
