with Donnal Miller Damon - Chebeague Island Historical Society
Free Walking Tour Saturday, May 6 at 11:00 AM
Estimated duration: 90 minutes

For the second year, the Chebeague Island Historical Society is participating in Jane's Walk, an international day that celebrates community by encouraging people to learn more about the place they live. Last year the CIHS toured the East End, and this year participants will have an opportunity to learn more about the evolution of the Coleman Cove Neighborhood. There is no fee for a Jane's Walk.

If you plan to join the walk, please pre register by sending an email to to make sure we have enough handouts. The walk is limited to no more than 20 people. We will host another tour at a later date, if there is enough interest.

Coleman's Cove has a long fishing history, but it was also a transportation hub—home to two steamboat wharves. In addition, there was once a store, a boarding house, a gas pump, and almost a church! While erosion threatens the road and a shell midden, part of the Cove is protected by a conservation easement and public access to a sand beach adjacent to a deep water anchorage. Join the walk and learn about this neighborhood’s connected history!

Accessibility: This is a walking tour but is accessible by golf cart if required.
Starting and ending point: The intersection of South Road and South Shore Drive.
