Freeport Historical Society (FHS) Members and the public are invited to the Old Freeport Town Hall, 5 Park Street, on Thursday, May 26th, 7:00pm-9:00pm for our forty-second Annual Meeting.
The evening will be a celebration of Freeport history including the “Freeport Challenge” crossword puzzle. A Volunteer recognition ceremony, the Mel Collins Community Service Award, and presentation of the sixth Partners in Preservation award will be among the highlights. A short business meeting will precede the awards program.
Our special guest speaker is Assoc. Professor, Nathan Hamilton, who has taught at the University of Southern Maine since 1987 in both the graduate and undergraduate programs. His presentation title is “Historic environments of the western Gulf of Maine: An archaeological view from Casco Bay and the Isles of Shoals.” His decades long work in historic archaeology links to our summer-long Diggin’History program, which focuses on thirty years of archaeology which has taken place at historic Pettengill Farm.
Arrive early to view the special display of items that have recently been donated to the Collection and take the “Freeport Challenge,” a wall-size crossword puzzle where you can test your knowledge of Freeport and its past!
Sweets and beverages will be available.
