Reviewed 13 April 2009

The Washburn-Norlands Living History Center, has a variety programs that allow you to experience life as it truly was in 18th and 19th century Maine. It is really a fascinating experience. Great for the whole family. You can feed the animals, cook in the kitchen of the 18th century and experience all the workings of the entire farm.

They are having a Civil War Reenactment this June 6 & 7, 2009. Two days of full scale battle, period bean supper at 5PM & 19th century Contra-Dance at 7pm on June 6th. There will be activities for everyone including blacksmithing and a 19th century fashion show - there will be something for everyone.

You can find all the details on their web site.

Gen. Info from their site:
Norlands is the family home of the Washburns, one of the great political and industrial dynasties of the 19th century. Of the ten children born to Israel and Martha Washburn, seven sons rose to serve as governors, congressmen, a United States senator, Secretary of State, foreign ministers, a Civil War general, and a Navy captain.
