Walking Tour: Potter Street, Brunswick 08/27/23 at 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

Walking Tour: Potter Street, Brunswick

Pejepscot History Center’s Walking Tour Series presents

Potter Street, Brunswick with Don Westfall

Sunday, August 27, 2023 at 1pm

For a little street, this one sure boasts a lot of history. Since 2023 is the 40th anniversary of PHC owning and operating the Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum, on the corner of Maine and Potter, we thought it was high time to share a bit more about this short, but not-short-on-history, street. We’ll start on one side at the east end and walk the length to Union Street and then back. In addition to the General and his #1 fan, our esteemed Senator Angus King’s house, Don will fill you in on some of the other historical residents and mix of architectural styles that make this street unique.

Participants meet at starting point; driving directions and parking information provided upon registration. Please check-in with tour leader at least 10 minutes prior to tour time.

Tours are limited to 20 unless otherwise noted. PHC maintains a waiting list for each tour in case of cancellations. Most tours are 75-90 minutes, though tours outside of downtown may go slightly longer. Please dress accordingly for the weather and wear sturdy shoes, sunblock, and/or bug spray as needed.

PRE-REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT REQUIRED: $8 PHC Members, $12 General Admission (ages 12+), Free for children ages 0-11. Register online at or call Pejepscot History Center at 207.729.6606.
