‘Touring through Time’ Keeps Blue Hill’s Past Present
The Blue Hill Historical Society joined other societies throughout the Peninsula, Saturday, July 27, in a “Tour through Time.” Though it was sunny and sweltering, visitors flocked to tour Holt House. Tours of Holt House ran from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. featuring an exhibit on Blue Hill author Mary Ellen Chase. The exhibit showcases Chase family heirlooms, including a sea captain’s liquor chest and Rose Medallion china. A “Magical History Tour” of downtown Blue Hill was also given by the society at 1 p.m. to those lucky enough to snag a spot.
Antiquities donated by local supporters of Holt House make up the majority of its furnishings.
It was a group effort to welcome and delight guests. Pictured from left are Max Rhine, Camilla Saly-Monzingo, Diana Page, Greg Bush, and Dena Sozio.
