Bean supper to give ‘sense of place’

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.
