Maine Maple Sunday - Pancake Breakfast & Old Time Maple Sugaring

Experience a late winter ritual done the old-fashioned way at a 19th-century living history farm nestled in the Western Lakes and Mountains region of Maine. In celebration of Maine Maple Sunday on March 23rd, the Washburn-Norlands Living History Center in Livermore will be open from 9:30am to 2pm and serving up delicious homemade pancakes with sausage in the farmer’s cottage, a replica of the original 1867 historic building.  Sap boiling demonstrations will take place in the Sugar House.  Visitors can help tap trees and collect sap.  History comes alive in the District #7 one-room schoolhouse.  Be sure to visit with the schoolmarm and go back to the basis of reading, writing, and ‘rithmetic using materials of the time. It’s all in fun!  Bring snowshoes or sleds and enjoy the fields and wooded trails on the 445 acres at this National Historic Site.  The gift shop will be open with maple treats and local syrup for sale.  The only charge is $6 - $8 for pancakes and sausage; otherwise the event is free.  No reservations are necessary.  The Washburn-Norlands is located at 290 Norlands Road in Livermore.
