Cedar Grove School circa late 1930′s (Photo provided)
DRESDEN, Maine — Reminiscences of growing up in Dresden and attending a one-room elementary school there some 70 years ago will be the topic at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 19, at the Pownalborough Court House.
Telling the story will be three persons who lived next door to the court house, Chuck Vaughan and his two sisters, Zibette Vaughan Dean and Nancy Vaughan Holmes and their schoolmate and long-time family friend Eleanor Everson.
The talk will include a photographic presentation of life many years ago including photos of the one room school house they attended in Cedar Grove, views of traffic on the Kennebec River, and the moving of a house.
The gathering is the second “Summer Afternoon at 2″ event at the 1761 court house, organized by the Lincoln County Historical Association, which owns and oversees the historic building.
Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch, spend the morning hiking on the newly built trails on the property and then attend the talk.
