On Saturday, June 8, from 10 a.m. to noon, the Chapman-Hall House Stewardship Committee is holding an information meeting for all those interested in volunteering at this Damariscotta historic site.  Docents who presently volunteer at the House and stewardship committee members will be on hand to visit with individuals curious about what is involved in helping outl.  Come and learn about exhibit work and how to be a docent.

This historic site, dated to 1754, is the oldest known house in Damariscotta.  Built in a unique manner for this area, and arranged to tour visitors through different time periods, it offers docents and visitors an opportunity to learn about local history and the ever changing tastes of society.

Chapman-Hall House opens for the season on the weekend of June 1 and 2.  On Saturday, June 1, Jeffrey Miller, blacksmith, will demonstrate his trade from noon to 4 p.m.

If you enjoy history, and visiting with people from all over the country, please attend the June 8 gathering at Chapman-Hall House, 270 Main St., Damariscotta. You’re welcome to arrive any time between 10 a.m. and noon; refreshments will be served.
