Art, Artifacts, and Anecdotes: 150 Years of Collecting at the Saco Museum
June 11 - October 30, 2016

Established in 1866 as the York Institute, the Saco Museum is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2016. In the years since its founding, the Museum has acquired a rich and diverse collection of objects. Many of these artifacts came to the museum with fascinating accounts of the people who owned or made them. Join us this summer as we explore the intriguing stories-sometimes true and sometimes not-behind noteworthy objects in the museum's collection. Along the way, we will also delve into a number of popular myths and misconceptions about life in early New England. From portraits by noted artist John Brewster Jr., to finely crafted furniture (both large and small), to a 1950s bass drum from the Vacationland Drum and Bugle Corps, there will be something of interest for all to see.
