The Scarborough Historical Society’s annual meeting will be 2:00 PM, April 8th, the second Sunday of the month, as Easter is April 1st. After the business meeting, John Babin, visitor services manager for the Wadsworth/Longfellow House in Portland, take us inside the historic Longfellow House through photos and talk. He and also explore the city that shaped the poet. Longfellow wrote his first childhood poem in the house on Congress Street built by his grandfather Peleg Wadsworth. He went on to write the classics you’re sure to remember—”Paul Revere’s Ride” and “Evangeline.”

At this meeting, we will draw winners of our loon and the bamboo fly rod raffles.
