AUGUSTA — Members of the public are invited to join the First Amendment Museum in celebrating the Fourth of July at the Gannett House in Augusta.

Beginning at 3 p.m. on the Fourth, the First Amendment Museum will host lawn games and a painting activity on the lawn of the Gannett House at 184 State St. The Gannett House’s location is also a prime spot for viewing the Augusta Fourth of July parade when it kicks off at 4 p.m.

About the First Amendment Museum

The mission of the First Amendment Museum at the Gannett House is to examine the history and promote the practice and understanding of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. The Gannett family’s local, state, and national involvement in such history and practice will set the stage for the examination of these freedoms around the world.

The museum is repurposing the home of Maine newspaper publisher Guy P. Gannett as an interactive First Amendment museum honoring the Gannett family legacy.
