Open Houses and Walking Tours

The Open Houses will be held at our two historic homes, Robbins and Sargent houses on River Road. The Downtown Walking Tour begins at 9:00 at the Robbins House, and the Uptown Tour begins at 12:00 at Wakeman Hall. The Wakeman Archives will be open from 10:00AM-2:00 PM. The 2019 displays at the Wakeman Hall will feature D-Day and will have the front page of the Blade for June 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th of 1944. There are also WWII Army and Navy uniforms located at Wakeman. The downstairs of Robbins House will feature businesses of Waterville with a baseball uniform, Koral t-shirt, pictures and artifacts of the businesses here. There are also binders with pictures and ads from the last hundred years.  A new exhibit in the upstairs at the Robbins House is recognizing the contributions of local, national and international efforts to win universal suffrage for women. While the exhibit for April and May will concentrate on the Suffrage Movement, later exhibits will feature women who distinguished themselves in all areas of endeavor, as well as recent efforts to win equal rights for women worldwide. The June 15th Historic Home Tour tickets also available here online under Join and Give. You can also buy tickets at the Wakeman Archives any time that we are open.
