The Old Broad Bay Family History Association has provided funding for a new sign marking the site of the Moravian Mission on Friendship Road just outside of Waldoboro on the Robbins’ property.

It explains that the mission was on one lot and the German Church on the next (before being moved across the river to its present site.) The original sign was erected in the late 1970s by the Waldoborough Historical Society under the leadership of Gwen Miller and Dr. Jasper Stahl. It was one of several signs commemorating historic sites in the town: Samson Cove, Town Pound, Gov. Reed Mansion and Down River View in West Waldoboro.

The Old Broad Bay Family History Association will hold its annual meeting Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Knox-Lincoln County Extension Building at 9 a.m. The public is invited to attend to hear a presentation by Cheryl Patten, secretary of the Old Maine Cemetery Association. She will discuss her association’s offerings and will give some tips on the care and preservation of old cemeteries and headstones. Genealogy assistance will also be offered. Jean Lawrence will lead a tour of historic Waldoboro sites leaving from the Waldoborough Historical Society at 2 p.m.
