Hiram Historical Society presents the “world famous” *Trash Can Turkey
Roast* on Saturday, October 21, 2023, at noon, rain or shine, at the Hiram
Community Center on Historical Ridge in Hiram Village. Our local roasters –
Smoke’N Days – will be back for a show outside and a feast inside. Admission is a
mere $15 for adults and
$12 kids under 12, first-come, first-served. There will be music by
Katherine Rhoda while you eat, three foodie raffles – including FOUR live
lobsters and restaurant gift certificates, and a Kids Craft Table. Come
join in the fun! Did we mention - rain or shine!
Across the driveway will be an Open House at the Great Ossipee Museum and an
exciting new exhibit - More Than a Store: A Window into Two 1800's Maine
Country Stores - featuring Hiram’s beloved Cotton’s store on the Saco River
and one you might not have known on the Ossipee. Come see what it is all
about, who the customers where, what they bought and bartered, prices you
wouldn’t believe, the result of hours of research by a team of volunteers.
Just off the press, the 2024 Calendar will be for sale in the Museum! It is
based on the exhibit, containing scenarios of the important role of
country stores in our community. The calendar is a clever merger of
research and photos in full color. It is a great gift. Also great gifts - a
new booklet, Hog Reaves, Field Drivers, and Tything Men, and three videos
on flash drives: Wadsworth Hall, Native Americans, and the Hiram Medley and
Tour of Historic Houses Built Before 1830. Step across the parking lot and
see what else there is in the Museum!
The exhibit will also be open Wednesday, October 25 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., then the
Museum closes for the winter.
