Winthrop Maine Historical Society will hold its regular business meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, via Zoom.

According to a release from the society, in 1767, John Chandler was granted by the Committee of the Kennebeck Purchase two lots of land of two hundred acres each near the mill stream in Ponds Town with the condition that he gives bond to build a Saw Mill in one year and a Grist Mill in three years and makes on settlement on said 400 acres and another settlement on the 200 acre lot. The Agreement was signed by John Hancock himself.

2021 is going to be an awesome year for the historical society. It’s Winthrop’s Quarter-Millennial. Winthrop is 250 years old. That’s one of the various items on the agenda of the meeting.
