After the paddle we will tour the Norland's Living HIstory Center in LIvermore. Click here to view the website and address. The Center has been kind enough to open for us on this leg of our journey down the river. The center will be open from 1:30 to 4 for our group to tour. If the paddle gets cancelled either due to too low water levels or rain, we will still tour the Norland's Living History Center. 290 Norlands Road, Livermore Maine 04253.
