Readfield historian Dale Potter-Clark will share the history of some old homes and buildings in and around Readfield Depot at 9:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 27, at Senior Café, Maranacook Middle School Cafeteria.

The presentation about the Rise and Decline of Readfield Depot will feature the evolution of that area into a village, tidbits about some people who have lived there, and how the symbiotic relationship between Readfield Depot and summer residents helped boost the town’s economy and overall lakeside development. A slide show of vintage photos will be shown throughout the presentation. In addition, Potter-Clark will read about Readfield Depot from the book she co-authored titled “The Founders and Evolution of Summer Resorts and Kids’ Camps on Four Lakes in Central Maine.”

There will be coffee, muffins and social time from 9 to 9:30 a.m. before the program.
