The July meeting of the Searsport Historical Society will consist of a special outing Tuesday, July 13, to visit the Searsmont Historical Society. All members and friends will gather at the Congregational Church on Church Street in Searsport at 6 p.m. to form a carpool and travel to our “sister town,” Searsmont, both towns having been named for the same well-to-do Boston businessman who had financial investments in both areas.

Everyone is to bring their own picnic supper to enjoy In Searsmont, after which the Searsmont Society will guide everyone on a tour of their museum.
