WASHBURN, Maine — The Salmon Brook Historical Society will hold its annual Tea and Quilt Show on Sunday, Aug. 4, with sittings at 11 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 2:45 p.m.

Organizers said in addition to “sumptuous, tasty nibbles” and tea, served by members and friends of the historical society, there will be more than 100 handcrafted quilts for attendees to view.

Guests are also invited to take a tour through the historic Wilder House, where a new exhibit has been prepared especially for this event. “Vintage Wedding Attire Through the Decades” features dresses from 1884 through 1978, with each of the gowns having a direct connection to the Washburn area.
