Focus on Parsonsfield’s illustrious Rufus McIntire & his family
Last year we were given some amazing treasures from one of the early families of Parsonsfield by the descendants of one of Parsonsfield’s most distinguished residents: Rufus McIntire: veteran of the War of 1812, involved in the Northeast Boundary Dispute with England, a participant in Maine’s transition to statehood, and a US Congressman among many other endeavors. Locally, he was a practicing lawyer and involved in local politics and local education.
Our exhibit will feature some fascinating items concerning the McIntire family and much more about this family that lived in the geographical and political center of Parsonsfield. Parsonsfield resident, Lyn Sudlow, will be speaking about the McIntire family at our July 22 meeting.
We also have ongoing exhibits about our area’s history with information about past businesses, the mill, schools, and past residents and much more. We are getting ready for the 2022 season and planning some great programs, too. Please check back and join us this summer.
If you would like to receive notices of our events, make sure you are a member and that we have your current email address.
