According to the Bangor Daily News, one of Maine's most popular school field trip destinations, Norlands Living History Center, is officially back open. If you attended school in Central Maine sometime around your fourth-grade year, you have more than likely visited this place even if you don't remember it.

Norlands Living History Center is located in Livermore, Maine, and is known for bringing Livermore’s celebrated Washburn family from the 19 Century.

Students and visitors have a chance to tour the Washburn Mansion and family cottage and learn some of the everyday life skills used in the 19th century. Visitors get to attend school in a one-room schoolhouse; they also learn to cook, clean, and take care of daily chores. When you visit, you really feel like you're there living a 19th-century life.

Norlands is opened during July and August from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Tuesdays and Thursdays. Admission is $15 for adults, $6 for Children 12 and under, and those under 6 are free. Memberships are available for additional discounts.
