DRESDEN — The Lincoln County Historical Association plans to present Halloween tours from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, October 29 and 30 at the Pownalborough Courthouse at 23 Court House Road.

Attendees can experience tours of the courthouse and cemetery, with hauntings provided by actors portraying the ghosts of Pownalborough’s past. Hot chocolate and cider will be available, as well as an outdoor fire for guests to warm up and enjoy the property after their “relaxing” visit.

Tickets are $10 and free for children under 16. For tickets, visit lincolncountyhistory.org. Visits should start every 15 minutes and be limited to four people or a family group of no more than six people.

According to CDC recommendations, masks are mandatory in the courthouse.

The Lincoln County Historical Association is a nonprofit organization that stewards the 1754 Chapman-Hall House in Damariscotta, the 1761 Pownalborough Courthouse in Dresden, and the 1811 Old Jail and Museum in Wiscasset.
