Youthful Memories of Freeport
with Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr.
Meetinghouse Arts, 40 Main St.
This event has already taken place.
State Historian Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr. will present a program reflecting on his experiences in Freeport and at his father’s department store at Freeport Corner in the 1950s-1960s – a time where he remembers a big, small town with many characters. Join Earle for a trip down memory lane enriched by his deep knowledge and personal connections to Maine’s history.
Earle Shettleworth began a lifetime of passionately
preserving and sharing Maine’s history at a young age when he became a founding
member of Greater Portland Landmarks. His long career in Maine’s historical
community has included tenure as the President of the Maine Historical Society,
positions on several state planning commissions, and innumerable lectures and
publications on Maine’s architectural, artistic, and cultural heritage. Earle
has served as Maine’s State Historian since 2004, and earlier this year his
contributions to our state’s historical community were acknowledged when he
received Maine Historical Society’s Maine History Maker award.
