Winter Castine Historical SocietyJoin the Castine Historical Society and the Wilson Museum for a Holiday Open House on Thursday, December 2 from 4-6 PM. This free event takes place at the Castine Historical Society’s Grindle House at 13 School Street on the Town Common and the Hutchins Education Center at 112 Perkins Street on the Wilson Museum campus.

Visitors can kick-off the holiday season by going between these two institutions to enjoy light refreshments and outdoor fire pits. Visit the Wilson Museum to explore different interpretations of one of the most recognizable constellations in the Northern Hemisphere, Ursa Major. The museum will be providing all the materials necessary for a fun make-and-take craft session so you can leave with a keepsake that honors the timeless legend of the great Bear in the sky.

The Castine Historical Society will be giving special behind-the-scenes tours of the 1850 Grindle House including sneak peeks into collections storage. Also offered will be a unique holiday shopping experience for those wanting to kick-start their gift giving.

Both institutions are using this event to partner with Blue Angel in an effort to deliver food to local families in need. We encourage you to drop off shelf-stable foods at either location.

This outdoor/indoor event will follow COVID protocols. While indoors, visitors are requested to wear face coverings. For questions, please call either the Wilson Museum at 207-326-9247 or the Castine Historical Society at 207-326-4118.
