Bath lecture to focus on Lincoln County's early history
BATH — The Bath Historical Society will present an illustrated lecture on “The Early History of Lincoln County” on Saturday, Nov. 13.
Jay Robbins, executive director of the Lincoln County Historical Association, will present the lecture. He has been studying the colonial history of Mid-Coast Maine for more than 40 years, and his business, Robbins Historical Research, specializes in genealogical and property research. He is also the co-coordinator of Lincoln County's 250th celebration this year.
When the county was incorporated in the District of Maine in 1760, it included all the territory from the New Meadows River east to Nova Scotia and north to Quebec. Most of Maine's counties were carved out of Lincoln, such as Sagadahoc County, which was not incorporated until 1854.
The program will be held in the Community Room at the Patten Free Library, 33 Summer St., at 10:30 a.m. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served at 10 a.m. Call 443-5141, ext. 18, for more information.
