Come tour this historic building and hear Katherine Rhoda play “Music of the Suffragettes” to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Maine ratifying the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote.
Katherine is well known for playing her antique instruments and singing folk songs and other music from our past history.  
This unique building is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the very few meeting houses left.

It played an important part in the early history of Porter. As you enter the building step back in history to 1824 and imagine attending a Bullockite quarterly service or participating in a Porter Town Meeting here. 

(For more information and pictures about the history of the Old Porter Meeting House, see our previous BLOG post dated Nov. 4, 2016.)
