Freeport Historical Society – A Photographic Tour of South Freeport

Join FHS Executive Director Jim Cram for a photographic tour of South Freeport!

The origins of this presentation came from a box of photographs and oversize negatives that came from Jim grandmother’s attic. Neva Star Soule was the daughter of Emily Soule and Josiah Soule. Born in 1875, Neva grew up in South Freeport. She married Fred Chase from North Yarmouth and they built a new house on Cumberland Foreside in 1900. Jim grew up in that house. In the box were over 200 images and portraits, many of South Freeport Village taken from 1904 into the teens. These images are combined with others from the collection of the Freeport Historical Society to create a presentation which includes public buildings, including the church and two schools, the coming of the trolley system, Casco Castle, and background information of a few houses and the old post office. Many early images of the Harraseeket and the waterfront are included.

Community Hall at the South Freeport Church. Refreshments will be served starting at 6:30, the talk will begin at 7:00 pm.

Suggested donation: $5
