The CIHS exhibit “Growing Up on Chebeague” opens on Friday July 22 at 11am!

It is the story of how childhood experiences create a sense of place. It contains items that have been loaned or donated from 135 of your island friends! The exhibit includes more than 400 photos depicting the adventure of being a child on Chebeague from the Civil War to the present. More than a dozen people worked on the exhibit beginning in 2019. Covid slowed up the project but the end result is worth the wait! A special shout out to Cathy MacNeill who devoted hundreds of hours to the project.
