Valley tales the topic for Feb. 22 Historical Society meeting

Valley tales the topic for Feb. 22 Historical Society meeting

Did you know that the remains of an 18th century village lie beneath the Androscoggin River? Its true — the village, a part of the Town of Turner, disappeared when the Gulf Island Dam was built in the 1920s.
Jonathan P. LaBonte, executive director of the Androscoggin Land Trust since 2008 and a county commissioner, will talk about this and other valley tales that link the landscape with the region’s history at the meeting of the Androscoggin Historical Society on Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. in the Society’s headquarters, on the third floor of the County Courthouse at the corner of Court and Turner Streets in Auburn. The public is invited to attend without charge. An elevator is available.
LaBonte also will discuss how land conservation and recreation are opening new doors to telling the history of the river and its communities. The Trust currently conserves more than 4,650 acres, including more than nine miles of frontage along the Androscoggin River.
LaBonte grew up in New Auburn.
