Summer Exhibit on South Berwick Trade, Revolution, and Manufacturing

The Counting House Museum is currently offering an exhibit that combines three different displays produced in the past few years by the historical society, including one funded by a grant from the Maine Humanities Council.

The Counting House is on the corner of Main and Liberty Streets. Visiting hours are Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm  through October, and year round by appointment. Admission is by donation.

As a new feature, the museum offers children the chance to hoist signal flags using a block and tackle actually used aboard a Seacoast vessel, and search the museum on a scavenger hunt.  Visitors are also invited to peruse local history reference books and archives.
