Archives for October 2012
This is Moose 1 NCCC/Americorps team who worked this autumn in a three-way partnership with Greater Portland Habitat for Humanity and Freeport and Pejebscot Historical Societies. For its work with Freeport Historical Society, the team gently scraped, washed, primed and painted the historic saltbox at Pettengill.
Freeport Historical Society (FHS) is offering a NEW Ghosts of Freeport’s Past walking tour this year, taking place in the historic Woodlawn Cemetery, located on West Street in Freeport, ME. Led by a lantern-carrying docent and in small groups of ten guests, we will visit specific locations at the burial ground where a range of prominent, former Freeporter’s will share fascinating stories from their past. Groups will be ”pulsed” into the cemetery every 10 minutes with a tour expected to take about forty minutes. The Woodlawn Cemetery holds some of Freeport’s most prominent past residents including shipbuilders, industrialists, maritime Captain’s and wives, clergy and others whose stories are fascinating. Tours begin at Woodlawn Cemetery at 6:30p on October 26, 27 and 30 and are expected to end by 8:00p or earlier. Tickets for the tours are $10. for adults and $5. for children 12 years and younger. All tour participants must bring a flashlight, dress for the outdoors and be prepared for walking on somewhat uneven ground. Parking is available in the RSU5 Administration Parking lot on West or along the south side of West Street. Reservations are urged as previous year’s tours have all sold out. Also NEW this year, taking place on Thursday, October 25th from 5:30p-7:30p at 45 Main Street, psychic medium, Eddita Felt will be leading a Gallery Reading consisting of short 5-10 minute readings for everyone present. The readings may be psychic in nature, “medium-ship” readings, or both. In order to connect to all of the participants in a timely manner, Eddita asks everyone to bring three questions which can be answered with “yes” or “no.” Eddita will be answering “yes” or “no” to each question and she may also share with you other information that comes to her as a result of the question. Reservations for the Gallery reading are $22.00 each and are required. Light beverages will be available. FMI: (207) 865-3170, info@freeporthistoricalsoc
