Scribner’s Mill

HARRISON — Scribner’s Mill and Homestead will be open on Saturday, August 6 from 1 – 4 p.m.

HEBRON —Author Mark Alan Leslie briefed a joint meeting of the Hebron and Minot Historical Societies on the history of the Ku Klux Klan in Maine. His talk reflected the essence of his book “The Crossing” about the impact of the KKK on a small Maine town in 1923. According to Leslie, about 19% of the state supported the Klan and the Lewiston/Auburn area had around 2000 members. The Klan’s main target in the state was Roman Catholics and Jews. The Klan’s power was strong enough to help elect Governor Ralph Brewster, the mayors of Auburn, Rockland, Bath, and Westbrook, as well as the State Senate President Hodgdon Buzzell of Belfast.

The next Hebron Society meeting will feature the Poland Spring director of operations Laura Brown, speaking on the history of this famous organization. This will be at the Town Office, 351 Paris Road at 7 p.m. on August 23. The public is invited.
