Waldoboro — The Waldoborough Historical Society, 1164 Main St./Route 220, will open its doors for the final ArtWalk Waldoboro Saturday, Oct. 14. The museum will be open noon through 4:30 p.m., offering the final opportunity in 2017 to visit the museum, its Town Pound, schoolhouse and barn. Admission is free.

This will be the last time this season to see the newly refurbished “Water Witch” Fire Engine, which just won first place in the Class B Restored Hand Tub Engines Competition at the Maine State Firefighters Federation held in Boothbay. Also on display will be many of the museum’s paintings by local artists; and its small collection of Grace Rocks, handpainted and slipped into the museum anonymously.

The WHS trustees have announced their acceptance of a pen and ink drawing of the Waldoboro United Methodist Church, created by local artist Carol Brown for the 160th anniversary of the erection and dedication of the church’s sanctuary. Brown created it as the cover for the history written by Jean Lawrence for the anniversary observance on Oct. 29. The piece is now a part of the museum’s collection of local art.
