Winter in Maine
January 17-February 25, 2017

Maine winters can be long and cold - and in the days before central heat and modern insulated clothing, they probably felt even colder. However, New Englanders are hardy people, and have long made the best of the winter months. Winter in Maine will explore the way Mainers have worked and played in the cold winter months over the last 200 years.
