Journey into the past for a taste of history. Experience a late winter ritual done the old-fashioned way at Norlands, Maine’s premier living history museum, in Livermore. In celebration of Maine Maple Sunday on March 24th, the Washburn-Norlands Living History Center will be open from 9:30am to 2 pm and serving up delicious homemade pancakes with sausage drizzled in Norlands’ own maple syrup. Dining takes place in the historic farmer’s cottage and original 1867 Washburn family kitchen. Sap boiling demonstrations will take place in the Sap House.
History comes alive in the District #7 one-room schoolhouse. Be sure to visit with the schoolmarm and go back to the basis of reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic using materials of the time. It’s fun for all ages!
Bring snowshoes or sleds and enjoy the fields and trails on the 445 acres at this historical treasure.
Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop for Norlands’ own maple syrup and other treats to take home.
The only charge is $5 - $7 for breakfast. It is free admission to the schoolhouse and sap house.
No reservations are necessary.
