What else is going on?  Delicious BRHS Tea!

Yes, we now have two of our very own tea blends, developed for us by the good people at Merry Auld Market & Tea Co. in Boothbay.  Heritage Tea combines black tea with a hint of clove and orange. Herbal Heritage Tea is a blend of organic chamomile, peppermint, and lavender. The tea is $6 a 1.5 oz. package (which will make about 15 to 20 cups).  You can buy the tea in our museum shop or over the phone Wednesdays through Fridays.  We now take credit cards.

And Fabulous Cheddar Cheese!

On Saturday, October 6, the historical society will once again be selling two-year-aged Grafton Village cheddar cheese during the Fall Foliage Festival at the Boothbay Railway Village and at the society’s museum at 72 Oak Street in Boothbay Harbor. The society’s table inside the Town Hall at the Railway Village will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or until sold out. At the museum, cheese and baked goods will be on sale from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., or while supplies last.
