People and Places of Middle Road Village- A presentation by Lyn Sudlow

 Saturday, September 20 at 1pm at History House...

Middle Road Village was once the thriving center of Parsonsfield. There, at the crossroads of Middle Road and Merrill Hill Road, stood the town meeting house and offices, a school, a library, store and post office where the mail came each day.

   There were 2 churches, a large cemetery, a couple of blacksmith shops, a tavern and an inn and more than a score of beautiful houses. Residents included successful doctors, lawyers, farmers, and merchants. Today little is left of what existed back in the 1800's. Lyn Sudlow, who has been researching the history of Middle Road Village, will take us with her on a virtual journey into the past as we explore the changes over the years.  Please join us for this informative talk.
