DEXTER - The Dexter Historical Society is pleased to present, at the Abbott Museum, a photo exhibit entitled "Glimpses of Paradise; the Waterfalls of Southern Piscataquis County". The exhibit comprises over seventy-five 5" x 7" color photos by Erik Stumpfel. A CD version, with text, is available for purchase.
Mary Lightbody, a potter from Guilford, has placed several of her hand thrown stoneware clay bowls for sale at the Gift Shop. They are part of a line called Seasonal Fire in shades of pale green, blue and brown.
Also available at the shop is Anita Ambrose Savage's volume of memoirs, "Growing Up in Dexter, Maine", following a very successful book signing on Saturday, October 20.
The Society recently acquired a new artifact; a sign for W.J. Haseltine's Harness Shop. He was in business on lower Main Street from the 1880s to about 1927, when his son took over the business. The sign has black lettering on an orange background.
The Abbott Museum and Gift Shop, at 12 Church Street, is open Monday through Saturday from 10 to 4.
