Swan Island Events
Living History Reenactment
Date: July 20, 2013
Step back in time to the 18th century and interact with Fletcher’s Company on a scouting mission to Swan Island. Historically, the soldiers of Fletcher's Scouting Company patrolled the Maine woods to protect the settlements from attack by Native Americans and their French allies. Visitors will have a chance to observe and interact as they practice drill and patrol throughout the day. Come see history in the present. Explore the island and meet this group to learn about local history and life in Central Maine during the mid-1700s. Make sure to be on the island before 1pm for a discussion of the Native American raid against the Whiddon and Nobel families who were living on the island and taken in 1750.
Call ahead to reserve your spot for one of the passenger ferry trips to the island. Special Ferry Schedule for Saturday includes trips at 9am, 10am, 11am, 3pm, and 5pm.
