WHS hosting art show


WATERFORD – The Waterford Historical Society has owned the Old Town House on the shore of Lake Keoka since the town stopped using it for town meetings and administrative offices.

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary, there will be an open house and arts show from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, July 29. Artists with a Waterford connection and artists who have painted Waterford scenes or sites will exhibit their works at the building. People who own paintings by artists no longer here are also invited to participate.

It is a non-juried show to highlight art in Waterford and the beauty of the town. The building in which the show is taking place is 164 years old and an example of history and architecture itself.

Refreshments will be provided by the society and Birch Rock Camp of East Waterford. A few of the works of art may be for sale.

The society’s Rice Museum, located next to the library, will also be open and the library is extending its opening hours to 2 p.m. that day.

The event will follow the 9:30 a.m. music service with a community choir at the Waterford Congregational Church.
