WHAT: Restoration of a Georgetown Landmark -The Pergola at the Chalet

Presented by Rich Start of Georgetown

WHEN: Tuesday, September 16, 2014

TIME: 7:00 PM

WHERE: Georgetown Historical Society, 20 Bay Point Road, Georgetown

In April of 1910 noted photo-secessionist photographer and publisher Fred Holland Day was 45 years old when he recorded the rock explosion that began the complete alteration of his Five Islands, Maine coastal land. When the project was finished about three years later, a pier, a pergola, and a house designed as a chalet blended in with the cliffs and the waters overlooking Sheepscot Bay. Rich Start, a GHS Board member whose family has called Georgetown home for several generations, will present a program about the Chalet and the recently-rebuilt pergola which sits on the shore of Little Good Harbor. Rich will give us insights into the history and the restoration of this local landmark, and will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.


We are sure you will enjoy this informative presentation.

This program is free and open to the public. For more Info:, 371-9200

Exhibit and Sale

 It was with a 1970 invitation from the Zorach family that Albert Pucci and his wife, Gora, found Georgetown. GHS is pleased to have the opportunity to exhibit works that span much of his career.  Pucci attended Pratt Institute of Art (where he later taught for twenty-four years) and excelled as a free-lance commercial artist for forty years. His personal work utilized an interesting array of mediums, doing city scenes and seascapes, portraits, and still life. Some of his works will be available for purchase.

On Friday, August 1, 7pm Gora Pucci will be our guest speaker at a gallery talk. Mrs. Pucci will share recollections and insights about her husband’s long and successful career as both a painter and illustrator.
