Maine Forest and Logging Museum’s Living History Day
October 1 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm$3 – $17
Crisp fall air and woodsmoke–sights and sounds from a bygone era fill the grounds at the Maine Forest and Logging Museum on Oct. 1-2. The largest event of the year, re-enactors and demonstrators share their love of old things–cooking, sawing, forging, driving Lombards and lots more during two exciting days.
The Leonard’s Mills area at the Museum is where the 1790s and Civil War encampments take place. Wagon rides, cider pressing, candle dipping, old-fashioned fun! The water-powered sawmill and covered bridge are at the heart of the village.
The ‘modern’ part of the Museum has some early 1900s machinery–sawmills, machine shop, and the Lombard loghaulers. Processing wood in greater quantities drove the development of more and more machinery–haul more, saw faster. See the stuff in action!
The event runs 10-3, Saturday and Sunday, October 1 & 2, 262 Government Rd., off Rte. 178 in Bradley. Be a part of it–earn some volunteer hours! Contact us at 207-974-6278 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
