LIVERMORE FALLS — Maine’s Paper and Heritage Museum will hold a program featuring Castonguay Family Loggers (a local family), who will demonstrate the art of felling trees at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, at 22 Church St. The First Baptist Church, across the street from the museum, needs some large old trees taken down, so the museum has invited residents to see the live demonstration. Afterward, logging trucks will be on display and children will get the opportunity to see the inside of the trucks and ask the loggers questions.  

Admission will be free. Coffee and doughnuts will be available for sale and the museum will be open until 4 p.m.

In 2002, a group of people dedicated to preserving the history of the paper industry in Maine came together to establish Maine’s Paper and Heritage Museum, with the goal of capturing the cultural heritage of the paper-making towns and mills along the Androscoggin River. Its mission is to create an interactive museum where visitors can experience life in a paper-making community, as well as to encourage tourism, increase economic activity and showcase the area’s heritage.
