DAMARISCOTTA – Chapman-Hall House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and located on Main Street, in Damariscotta, will open for the season on June 5, noon to 4 pm. An open house will take place on June 6, noon to 4 pm, during which Celtic musicians, Castlebay, will perform, and refreshments will be served.

A plant sale, scheduled for June 12, will benefit summer activities. Other June events include a spinning workshop, led by Diane Langley, and blacksmithing demonstrations on June 26, by metal artist Andy Leck, of Scottish Lion.

Built in 1754 by housewright Nathaniel Chapman, of Ipswich, MA, the residence not only is the oldest building remaining in Damariscotta, but also is considered one of the oldest standing homes in the State of Maine. Chapman constructed the residence at the age of 51 and lived there until his death, at age 101, in 1804.
