CAMDEN — “Sunday, March 26, is the state-wide Maine Maple Sunday event across the state but you need to look no further than our local Camden-Rockport Historical Society for the sugaring off demonstration, free maple syrup sundaes and more,” said the Historical Society, in a news release.

Maine Maple Sunday marks the annual re-opening of the Historical Society’s campus and programs for the season.

“Much has been happening behind the scenes to ready the collections and plan for new programs thanks to our new program director, Susan Reidy,” said the release.

In addition to new displays in the museum, some related to Maple Syruping, the Homestead will be open to visitors and The Troops of Camden (Revolutionary War Re-enactors) will be on hand for outdoor activities including shingle making.

Reidy comes to the Historical Society through her connections with the Troops of Camden. She has many years experience as docent at Fort Halifax in Augusta. Her passion and enthusiasm for history had her running last summers’ History Camp for kids, a program which will be repeated again this summer. She has spent the winter working tirelessly with the collections, organizing new displays and planning some new events for the season.

Camden’s historic Walter Howe’s very own Sugar House will be the site for the sugaring off, Sunday, March 26, from 12 - 3 p.m.

“Come and smell the sweet steam, have a taste of ice cream with maple syrup, learn to make a shingle and view various textile and other displays that will take you back in time,” said the release.

The Historical Society’s campus is located on Rt 1 near the Camden-Rockport town line, just past Hannaford.
