The Camden-Rockport Historical Society has announced its summer schedule for this season.

The historic complex is located off Route 1 just south of the Hannaford store at the Camden-Rockport town lines.

Beginning Wednesday, May 29, the summer hours will be from 1 to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Historical Society President Frank Carr said “We will gladly open our facility by appointment (call 236-2257 or 691-6766) in addition, we will display our 'Open' sign when our volunteers are on the grounds working on projects.”

The objective is to have as many residents and summer visitors as possible to be able to spend time in the society's rich past. Local businesses and organizations are encouraged to contact them to arrange a visit or event for their group.

The society will be serving its very popular bean hole baked bean suppers on the second Saturday of each month June through September.

The campus consists of the 1790 Conway Homestead, an 1800s barn housing a display of farm implements and early carriages, a working 1830 blacksmith shop, 1820 sugar house and the Cramer Museum that houses a collection documents, photographs and artifacts depicting life in this region from its early days to the present.

The Historical Society is seeking volunteers to enable us keep the complex open additional hours. The society can be reached by phone at 236-2257 or by email at crhs@midcoast.com.
