Tate House Museum Presents a Living History Event

Portland ---- On Saturday, October 6, from 9AM to 4PM the Tate House Museum will host a living history day at the museum in historic Stroudwater. The event will showcase a “curated” living history display about the Indian wars here in Maine. These displays incorporate written and pictorial images including period maps, deeds and documents and museum quality reproduction items. These displays are interactive where visitors will get to learn the story of the eighty years of conflicts as told from the perspective of a soldier in the 1750’s and also from a farmer/settler on the Maine frontier in the 1670’s. These stories will be told by re-enactors in period dress and will tell tales that don’t make the textbooks.

This presentation is designed to tell the history of the Casco Bay region from both the Native and English perspective and is designed to be a see, touch, feel history for people of all ages. The event is FREE to the public and will run from 9AM until 4PM.
