Betty Carolin of Auburn, right, tries a replica flint drill Monday afternoon as Beverly Robbins, a director at the Androscoggin Historical Society, steadies a piece of wood during an Indigenous Peoples Day display at the Knight House next to Great Falls in Auburn. “I have a strong interest in everything about indigenous people and came to check it out and learn whatever I could,” Carolin said. The society showcased some of the replica tools, games, art and other items used by indigenous people in the area. The society helps manage the the city-owned Knight House, one of the oldest structures in Auburn and located on land owned by Central Maine Power Co. The society has numerous artifacts, some thousands of years old, that will be on display in the near future when it opens its new location on Lisbon Street in Lewiston. The organization is moving from the Androscoggin County Building in Auburn. Russ Dillingham/Sun Journal
