Ten students from Kurt Rowley’s River Valley Civilization class at Dirigo High School toured the Dixfield Historical Society’s Museum House on Dec. 20.

This was the first group tour of the museum house in two years because of the pandemic.

It was a somewhat cold tour as most of the museum is not heated in the winter, but students were able to tour the John L. Towle Antique Tool Museum, the meeting room with some new exhibits that have been developed, and the main house, according to a news release from Donna Towle, the society’s president.

She and fellow tour guide Butch Towle met the students in the dining room that is being used this winter to work on collections. The society looks to offer more tours this spring and summer.
