  1. Guided Walking Tour of Historic Skowhegan Island

    July 25, 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. @ Arnold Park on Skowhegan Island behind the Federated Church

    This historical walking/guided tour takes participants back to the early 1800s with the use of early photos and historic structures. Participants will be offered in-depth information and visuals that will assist in creating a good understanding of what role Skowhegan Island and Skowhegan Falls have played in the early industry and culture of this area. Participants will gleam what it was like to live and work in this era and how the power of moving water can shape the destiny of a community. Thousands of vehicles cross this island every year- a place that once could be accessed only by rowboat, canoe, or barteaux; a place that Indians used for fishing, resting, growing crops, and gathering mineral resources for their weapons. Take the tour to see why Skowhegan Falls was and is the heart of life in this community.
