Buxton Notes


Maypole dancing

The Buxton-Hollis Historical Society welcomes spring with its Victorian White Party and Maypole Dancing III from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, May 20, at Quillcote, 20 Salmon Falls Road, Hollis.

Quillcote is the historic summer home of famed chldren’s author Kate Douglas Wiggin.

“This popular event again features the Movers & Shakers Competitive Dance Team from All That Dance Studio in West Buxton gracefully winding and unwinding the Maypole to authentic Celtic music,” the historical society announced.  “This year, the Bonny Eagle High School Select Chorus will sing.”

Carla Turner, owner of Quillcote, has invited historians to view Wiggin’s library, which remains just as she left it. 

Refreshments will be served and historical society donations are always gratefully accepted.
