If you are in the MDI area this month, make sure to visit us on Thursday, February 16 for the second discussion in our second annual brown bag lunch series.  This year's series will explore topics related to our blockbuster exhibit, Indians & Rusticators.  This discussion will be led by Tim Garrity, historian and Executive Director of the Mount Desert Island Historical Society and is titled: Indians & Rusticators: The Great Fire.  Bring your lunch and join us for this free event from noon-1pm to learn about the fire of 1947 that forever changed Mount Desert Island.
