Mon, 06/17/2019 - 8:00am

Join Jean Lawrence at The Lincoln Home on Monday, June 24, from 3 to 4 p.m. to learn about the history of Waldoboro. This midcoast town was settled largely by German emigrants, and their cultural heritage remains to this day. General Samuel Waldo, a Boston merchant, brought over the first settlers on the ship Lydia in 1742. Originally called “Broad Bay,” the town was incorporated as Waldoboro in 1773.

The Lincoln Home is located at 22 River Road, Newcastle. For more information, contact Rhonda Hanna, 563-3350, or rhonda@lincoln-home.org
