2020 Maine Bicentennial

  1. Holding Up the Sky: Wabanaki People, Culture, History & Art Exhibition

    April 12, 2019 - February 1, 2020 @ Maine Historical Society

    Holding up the Sky explores Wabanaki philosophies of leadership and obligation relating to humans and non-humans by highlighting 13,000 years of Wabanaki residence in what is now known as Maine. Wabanaki advisors guided the exhibition, interpreting 17th century colonial treaties, photographs, heritage items, and contemporary artworks—everything from ash baskets to haute couture fashion. Wabanaki voices provide context for the present-day relevance and repercussions of 400 years of shared histories between Wabanaki people and immigrants to their region.

  2. Baxter Trail Ribbon Cutting

    October 25, 2019, 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM @ Back Cove Trail Parking Lot, Baxter BLVD

    We hope you can join us for the ribbon cutting for the new Baxter Trail on October 25th at 1pm at Back Cove parking lot. Stretching from Back Cove to Evergreen Cemetery, the 2.5 mile Baxter Trail route memorializes the contributions of the Baxter family in creating our world-class park and trail system. Following existing trails and sidewalks, the trail passes through many parks and neighborhoods that were created or influenced by the Baxter family. Interpretive signage along the way tells the story of Mayor James Phinney Baxter, Governor Percival Baxter, and their families. The event will include a ribbon cutting followed by an optional walk of the 2.5 mile route, led by Parks staff and Commissioners.
