A History of the Boothbay Region in Ten Objects will be the theme of Boothbay Region Historical Society’s “Cake and Culture Tour” on Thursday, Aug. 16 at 11 a.m.

Are you curious about the Native American tribes of the region, who the first European settlers were and what their lives were like, how the American Revolution and Civil War affected life in Boothbay? The emphasis of this tour is on the people who lived in Boothbay and how the tenor of their lives changed over time. At the end of the tour, participants are invited to share their own memories of Boothbay over a slice of Victorian seed cake. The tour is hosted by Kathy Goldner, outreach manager at Boothbay Region Historical Society and admission is free to all.

Boothbay Region Historical Society is open to the public throughout the year, from Thursday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 .pm. For more information contact the museum at 633-0820, email brhs@gwi.net, or check the website at www.boothbayhistorical.org.
