Lincoln County Historical Association invites all county residents to visit its three museums free of charge on Saturday, June 4.

The 1754 Chapman-Hall House in Damariscotta, the 1761 Pownalborough Court House in Dresden, and the 1811 Old Jail in Wiscasset will be open for tours on a walk-in basis. The admission rate of $10 per person older than 16 will be waived for Lincoln County residents.

The Chapman-Hall House and the Old Jail Museum will both be open from noon to 4 p.m., while the Pownalborough Court House will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

At the Chapman-Hall House, visitors can visit a face-in-hole cutout photo booth and receive their own hand-forged nail to take home.

At the Old Jail Museum, guests will be offered homemade gingerbread (a staple of the prisoner’s diets), and at the Pownalborough Court House, all visitors will be entered in a drawing for locally handcrafted gifts.

The museums feature collections of textiles and costumes, tools, furniture, baskets, housewares, photographs, maps, manuscripts, and other ephemera that help to tell Lincoln County’s stories.
