AUBURN — The Androscoggin Historical Society will sponsor a program on “Antique Chests and Their Stories” by Churchill Barton at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27, at the society’s Davis-Wagg Museum, third floor of the Androscoggin County Building.

Amanda and Churchill Barton founded the Brettuns Village Trunk Shop in 1988 in the neighborhood known as Brettuns Village in the Town of Livermore. They specialized in the restoration of travel trunks and cases from the late 1800s. They have shipped their refinished trunks across the USA and around the world.

In 1990, the company began selling hardware, parts and supplies for trunk and case repair and restoration, and the company first appeared online ( in 1994. They operate from a barn in Livermore and a modern building at 557 Lincoln St., Lewiston (Bob’s Peanuts).

Admission for the program is free, although donations will be accepted. For more information about the society, call 207-784-0586. Enter the County Building on the Court Street side. An elevator is available.
