MOUNT DESERT — Mount Desert Island Historical Society’s sixth-annual bean supper will be served at Mount Desert Island High School on Monday, Jan. 23, from 6-8 p.m.
Community bean bakers will again present their versions of this classic New England staple, accompanied by brown bread, coleslaw, mustard pickles, rolls, meats and a selection of cookies.
The Barn Family Band will provide dinner music. After dinner, architectural historian Brad Emerson will examine shifting notions of place on Mount Desert Island in a slideshow and lecture titled “A Sense of Place: Changes and Constants”
Tickets, which cost $10 for adults, $5 for children, will be sold only at the door. Proceeds from the event will support history education programs at the Sound School House.
The Mount Desert Island Historical Society fosters meaningful engagement with the histories of Mount Desert Island.
