17 School Street
Castine, Maine 04421
The Castine Historical Society, which serves as a window into Castine’s extraordinary past as one of the first settled towns in Maine, has announced that it will host its House and Garden Tour on July 23, 2020. The upcoming tour will incorporate Maine’s Bicentennial theme into this tour of historic homes throughout the village. The tour will include 9 homes, 5 gardens, and Castine’s Dyce’s Head Lighthouse and John Perkins House. Many of the homes date from the time of Maine statehood. Incorporating homes throughout the village of Castine the tour will pay architectural homage to the two centuries since Maine’s statehood and independence from Massachusetts in 1820. Proceeds from the House and Garden Tour benefit the Castine Historical Society and the exhibitions and educational programs they offer free of charge for the community. A portion of the funds go to help support community-based projects in Castine.
