PRESQUE ISLE, Maine (WAGM) - It was a chance to take a look back through time at the Maysville Museum.

All this was done to celebrate Maine' Bicentennial. In 1820 Maine officially became a state.

Activities such as quill pen making, butter churning, old games and more attracted many to celebrate.

“It’s important to recognize 200 years in our history, and by doing some old time things that’s a great way to kind of celebrate that history.”

Kim Smith, Secretary Treasurer for the Presque Isle Historical Society

People braved the morning chill to come out and enjoy the festivities

“I’m actually looking forward to a handkerchief doll making activity which would help to provide little gifts for baby arrivals and things like that so I think it would be fun.”

Annisa Lamberton, Visitor to the event

The event also featured blacksmithing, a civil war reenactor, a fiddler and other fun activities for families to enjoy.
