DAMARISCOTTA — The Chapman-Hall House Historic Site on upper Main Street will open for the season June 10 and 11 with the special event, Three Traditions.

This year’s program offers insights into three of the roles very important to mid-coast Maine: the tradesmen of the Colonial period, the woodworker, the seafarer and his navigational instruments, and the role of the Colonial militiaman/settler. Dressed in mid-18th century costumes, living history professionals will share with visitors a look at life in colonial Maine using the skills of the time.

Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday, and noon and 3 p.m. Sunday, William Payson, of Camden, will discuss woodworking and the spring pole lathe; Paul Daiute, of Hallowell, will talk about the early settlers and their role in the militia; and Jeff Miller, of Waldoboro, will discuss the navigational tools used by seafarers who called the Mid-Coast home.

Because this special event is designed to be an ongoing, informal visit, specific times for presentations are not scheduled. Admission to visit with the presenters is free, but donations are appreciated to help support the preservation work at Chapman-Hall House. Tours of the house will be offered; admission charge is $5.

Chapman-Hall House, one of three historic sites under the care of Lincoln County Historical Association, is located at 270 Main St. During June, July and August, week-long summer programs for children will be held at the sites.
