In 1921, a cyclone ripped through Searsport. Many homes, businesses and other structures were damaged or destroyed as the storm moved in a sweeping arc from the northwest. Find out more about this impressive storm during a 1pm talk with slideshow by Ray Seamans from the Searsport Historical Society. Plus get hands-on learning about weather with a cyclone in a bottle and wind vane craft.

The Searsport Historical Society is active in preserving the history and heritage of this lovely coastal town. They meet on the second Tuesday of each month March thru December at Curtis Hall on Church Street. During the summer months they open the Crary/Carlin/Colman House on the Sears Island Road weekly. Everyone who is interested in being a member is invited to become involved with their many activities. For more information, stop by the Searsport Historical Society table at this program or find them on Facebook.
