A rainy Sunday is the perfect time to visit Owl’s Head where the Mussel Ridge Historical Society is hosting the Knox County Display of the Eastern Publishing Collection of historical photographs from the Penobscot Marine Museum in the upstairs room of the Owls Head Community Building from 2 to 4pm.   The Community Building is located at 224 Ash Point Drive (GPS may be a little off).

The display consists of historical photographs from real picture postcards taken throughout Knox County. Descriptions of each picture have been provided by organizations/individuals from each town in the county.  If you are not able to attend the reception today, the collection may be viewed any time the town office is open, which is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 to 5pm.

We hope you will take a look and let us know what you think.  We would love to hear your stories about these pictures.
