Three Traditions Event Opens Chapman-Hall House for the Season

DAMARISCOTTA — The Chapman-Hall House Historic Site opens for the season June 13 and 14. Continuing its celebration of the 260th Anniversary of the house, the site’s stewardship committee will offer a special program Saturday and Sunday.

Dressed in mid 18th century costumes, living history professionals will share with visitors three facets of life in Colonial Maine: Native American, Seafarers and Settlers.

Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday, Historic New England’s Gail White with Jeff Usher will present the history and life of the New England Native Americans; Paul Daiute, of Hallowell, will talk about the early settlers and their role in the militia; and Jeff Miller, of Flintlock Forge, will discuss the navigational tools used by seafarers who called the Mid-Coast home.

Because this event is designed to be an ongoing, informal visit, specific times for presentations are not scheduled. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated to help support the preservation work at Chapman-Hall House. Tours of the house will be half-price on this weekend.

Chapman-Hall House is located at 270 Main St. For more information, visit
