“The Mighty Goose River” is the topic for the Belfast Historical Society meeting at 7:00 pm, Monday, May 20, in the Abbott Room of the Belfast Free Library. Gary Stuckey, museum volunteer, will present the history of the Goose River, from the first dam built to power sawmills to electrical power generation at its mouth. Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries the river provided power for grist mills, sawmills, leatherboard factories and axe factories. Several ice businesses flourished along its length.

The Belfast Historical Society presents talks of local historical interest on the 4th Monday of the month from April through October. All presentations are in the Abbott Room at the Belfast Free Library and are open to the public. Seating is limited to 75. FMI visit BelfastMuseum.org or call 207 338-9229. These programs will be recorded and can be viewed on Belfast Community Television and on the museum website.
