2019 Spring Class

Maine History Tour

Instructor: Bob O’Halloran, Linda Williams

Fridays •  5/10-6/14 • 8:00 AM-4:00 PM

Location: Field Trip


We’re off on a magical History tour (with apologies to The Beatles) of well-known and little-known Maine sites. Have you seen the jewels and costumes of Maine’s internationally famous Diva, Lillian Norton Nordica? Would you like to see the family home visited by Frances Perkins, FDR’s Secretary of Labor on a tour specially conducted for our class? What about a walking tour of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Brunswick? All of these and many more places will be visited in this six-week class beginning May 10th. Carpools 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!
