Cinco de Mayo Supper at Narramissic

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, Bridgton Historical Society will hold a Mexican-American themed supper on Saturday, May 7, at “Narramissic,” the historic Peabody-Fitch farm in South Bridgton, weather permitting.   Cinco de Mayo, (Spanish for “Fifth of May”) is a holiday that commemorates the Mexican army’s victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.  It is a holiday which is celebrated primarily in the Mexican state of Puebla and the US, where it has become a celebration of Mexican-American heritage.

The barn will be festively decorated, a piñata has been donated to add to the fun, and BHS board member Walt Bannon (and friends, perhaps) will supply the music. The menu will include Spanish rice, chili, chips and salsa, as well as hamburgers and hot dogs.  Food will be served from 5:00 pm until 6:30.  Price of the meal is $10, $8 for members of the Bridgton Historical Society. 

Narramissic, located at the end of Ingalls Road, off route 107 in South Bridgton, with over 20 acres of fields, sits on one of the highest points of land in town, with spectacular mountain views. The restored farmhouse will not be open for tours since it is still in its winter “mothballed” state, but the society plans to have the house open Wednesday through Friday this summer, and for a full schedule of programs and special events.  The grounds are open during daylight hours year-round.   The Bridgton Historical Society also operates an archives and museum in the former fire station on Gibbs Avenue in downtown Bridgton, which is open by appointment year-round, and on a regular schedule during the summer months.  For further information contact the Bridgton Historical Society at PO box 44, Bridgton, ME 04009, (207) 647-3699, visit, or email
