Sponsored by Féile Irish Pub and Restaurant
and the Historical Society of Wells and Ogunquit

Kathy and Bill Kenny will take us on a journey through time inside Maine's historic taverns and tea rooms. These special community gathering places have been the setting for social and political changes throughout our history.  Many of these structures are still standing today, including the venue for this event: the historic Lindsey Tavern (now Féile Irish Pub and Restaurant) on Post Road in Wells. Coffee and tea will be served and food will be available for purchase.  Don't miss it! 

Holiday Market at the Meetinghouse
Sunday December 12, 2021, 10:00am to 2:00pm

Join us for our Holiday Market at the Meetinghouse as part of Ogunquit's festive Christmas by the Sea weekend.  Browse all the wonderful local vendors for crafts and other goodies, and enjoy hot cocoa, doughnuts, and popcorn.  Our historic 1862  Meetinghouse is the perfect spot to watch the start of the Town of Wells Christmas Parade at 2:00pm.

 

Vendor spaces are available at $25 each with all proceeds to benefit the educational programs at the Historical Society. All who are interested are asked to contact us to register for a vendor space.

Mornings at the Museum
Children's Programs

New Dates Coming Soon

We've started something new at the Meetinghouse: a children's program called Mornings at the Museum.  Kids enjoy a fun morning of stories, activities, a scavenger hunt, and a craft to take home.  And it's free!  The first programs have been a big hit, so be sure to check back with us for future program dates.

Warrior Sports Through the Years
At the Meetinghouse, date to be determined

Join us as we team up (pun intended!) with the Wells High School Alumni Association to present a fun and fascinating program tracing the history of school sports in Wells and Ogunquit.  Do you have any photos, stories, or newspaper clippings that you're willing to share for the program?  If so, please contact us.  Thank you!

Woodies in the Cove
Saturday, August 13, 2022

After a pandemic-cancelled show in 2020, what a treat it was to see everyone for our 2021 show!  And we're already looking forward to 2022.  This popular event has been held every August for more than 10 years and is well known in the world of Woodie car shows.  We’re pleased that it was one of the “top things to do at Exit 19” in 95 North magazine in 2018 and 2019.  This unique vintage car show and parade is our annual fundraiser, with all proceeds to benefit the Society.  Click here for details!
