Waldoborough Historical Society has received six tenths of an acre of land adjoining its museum which had been held in trust by the Medomak Valley Land Trust since the late 1970s, when the society was not able to accept it because the legal papers making it a nonprofit had not been completed. At that time, the Rev. John Ineson was the land trust president, and he kindly made it possible for the property to be accepted and held.

Though the society received its designation shortly after, the transfer became bogged down for years. Through the efforts of the land trust board led by Sally Butler, the legal transaction was completed April 13. Now the society has access on all sides to its property, making the buildings safer and plans for future expansion a real possibility.

The society will open officially for the summer on Waldoboro Day, June 17, but during the first two weekends of June, the museum complex will be open from noon to 3 p.m. The public is invited to visit; there is no admission fee.
