LINCOLN ACADEMY: Tom Flint, Rick Wiggin, and Sara Mattes — Saving the Flint Homestead

Monday, March 18, 2019

Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, March 18, at 12:30 when Tom Flint, Rick Wiggin and Sara Mattes discuss “Saving the Flint Homestead.” For over three centuries, the Flint Homestead has been a witness to and a participant in the sweep of American history. Dating back to the original 1630s land grant, it is connected with the founding of the town, the outbreak of the American Revolution, and the evolution of farming throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Ravages of time have put its future in serious doubt. Representatives of the Flint family and a committee of concerned citizens will discuss efforts to preserve and repurpose this historical treasure as a cultural and educational resource for the town and for the nation. The COA provides beverages and dessert. The lectures last about an hour, including a question and answer period. Participants are welcome to stay after the program to continue their discussion. All ages welcome!
