    Lincoln County Historical Association invites the community to make Saturday, June 24 a full day of festivities in Wiscasset. Begin the day at 10 a.m. with the Strawberry Festival at St. Philip’s Church and end with Jailhouse Rock! at 5 p.m. on the grounds of the Old Jail on Federal Street.

    The “yard” of the Old Jail will come alive with rock ’n roll music by Gary Lawless and his band, Leopard Girls. Bring a picnic and a blanket or lawn chairs. Cookout classics will also be offered, including hot dogs, veggie burgers, chips and water for a nominal fee. Pre-registration is requested. Admission is $5 for adults, kids free. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets at

    Gary Lawless has dug deep into his repertoire for jailhouse tunes, but most of the hits of the 1960s will surely be included. There will be lawn games for all ages, and a chance to meet new neighbors.

    The Lincoln County Historical Association is a non-profit organization that provides stewardship for the 1754 Chapman-Hall House in Damariscotta, the 1761 Pownalborough Court House in Dresden, and the 1811 Old Jail and Museum in Wiscasset.  For more information, visit or Lincoln County Historical Association (Maine) on Facebook.
