Harvest Festival at Curran Homestead

Written by Wire Reports

ORRINGTON - On Saturday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., visitors to The Curran Homestead Living History Farm and Museum at 372 Fields Pond Road in Orrington can take a step back in time to an era when their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents were young, and observe or take part in many activities that would be very familiar to members of those generations.

Brightly-colored autumn leaves announce daily that Summer has departed, and warm days of Indian Summer now fade into the chilly evenings of fall. As the hours of sunlight grow shorter with each passing day, marching from the equinox inexorably toward the solstice, we are reminded of the looming prospect of another Maine winter.
