The Searsport Historical Society is pleased to announce the acquisition of more than 100 early American pressed glass butter dishes from the Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Carver collection. Mr. Carver was a founding member of the Penobscot Marine Museum, and these dishes represent Mrs. Carver’s passion for early American glass. Included are many rare and unusual patterns, not usually seen today.

The Searsport Historical Society will be displaying these butter dishes during their opening weekend of Saturday, June 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sunday, June 19, from 1-4 p.m. at the Crary/Carlon/Coleman House on Sears Island Road in Searsport.

Everyone is invited to drop by to see this bit of Searsport history on display, and enjoy a tour the Crary/Carlon/Coleman House. The exhibit is open to the public at no charge.
