Harbour Mitchell will present a free program on "Philip Ulmer and the Archaeology of His Last House" on Wednesday, July 12, at 7 p.m. at the Lincolnville Community Library.

Ulmer was a Revolutionary War hero and one of the founders of the town of Lincolnville. Two years ago Mitchell led an archaeological dig at the site where Ulmer built his last house in the early 1800s.

Mitchell will show photos and tell about Ulmer’s early life, experiences during the Revolutionary War, and first years in the Ducktrap area of Lincolnville. Then he’ll describe Ulmer’s house and what remains at the site and explain what those who participated in the archaeological dig found and learned.

Mitchell, a board member of the Lincolnville Historical Society, has spent the last 30 years as an archaeologist and has worked for the Maine Historic Preservation Commission, the University of Maine, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Soil Conservation Service. Also a United Methodist pastor, he plans to retire soon from that role and continue his archaeological research.

The library is located at 208 Main St. in Lincolnville Center. For more information, call 763-4343 or email questions@lincolnvillelibrary.org.
