Events

Brownfield Grant Project - We are almost to the end of the"Brownfield Grant Project" which was to demolish the former Columbian Factory and remove an oil spill & asbestos from the property, move the Columbian store onto a new foundation, create a scenic turnout to enjoy the view of Johnson's Bay as well as a walking pathway to the shoreline.  We anticipate that once spring returns there is about three weeks worth of work left - this is exciting and rewarding to everyone!  We will be creating a new page titled "New Look" showing our new foundation and work on the sitecalled


Room Addition- We are asking for donations to help us complete a new addition to our building.  This room will house the town's 1900 watering trough, 1831 Grimbeauval  Field Cannon "fully restorred" (only two known to be in existance), Water Cannon that was on the roof top of the Peacock factory and the Bell that was originally on the Lubec  "Channel" Lighthouse aka the spark plug.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated in this endeavor - checks should be made out to Lubec Historical Society and mailed c/o Cecil Moores @ 155 Main Street, Lubec, ME  04652.  All donations are tax deductible and you will receive a letter acknowledging your donation for tax purposes.


Scheduled Talks - We are in the process of scheduling speakers for the 2017 season; please check back in early June for dates and times.


Welcome Wagon - The membership has taken on a new project this year with the blessing of the town select board to reinstitute a  "Welcome Wagon".  We are currently canassing local businesses to fill our newly purchased baskets with information, certificates, mugs, etc. to be presented to new homeowners living here year round.   We believe this will assist our "new community members" with the  businesses and serviceses available in Lubec. Thank you to all the local businesses who have provided items for the baskets!   


​​Future Project - We are researching/discussing with other organizations their processes for cleaning-up old cemeteries and repairs to old tombstones.  This would be a great opportunity for high school students, boy/girl scout troops and other organizations who need community service time or toward earning a badge (Eagle Scout).  If you, your class, organization, or your troop is interested in helping please send us an e-mail at lubechistoricalsociety@yahoo.com and we will contact you.  "We would like to have this as our 2017-18 project ." Volunteers, suggestions and ideas are always welcome!
