Cherryfield ~ Narraguagus Historical Society

Historic House Tour

Saturday July 20th 1-4pm

The Historical Society is reviving the house tour after taking a year off. We will be featuring the perennial favorites the Gen. Alexander Campbell House and the Ricker Blacksmith Shop. This year we are adding the mansard style house once owned A. L. Stewart. Mr. Stewart was a tinsmith and operated the first blueberry canning factory in Cherryfield. Also included will be the Arthur Willey House, the A. P. Burnham house, and the Society Museum. New this year will be an ongoing demonstration of how ladies spent their afternoons. When the morning work was done, and the noon meal cooked and cleaned up after, ladies would gather to visit and do many different things. Society member Ellen Tenan will be at the museum showing how to darn socks with a darning egg, feather stitching, rug braiding and other nearly lost art forms. Also new this year will be a lovely summer garden at the E. Freeman House. Tickets are $20.00 each. They may be purchased the day of the event or reserved ahead of time. Make checks payable to the Cherryfield ~ Narraguagus Historical Society and send to P.O. Box 122, Cherryfield, Me 04622. For more information call 207-546-2076 or email
