LL Bean hosts a lecture series on Friday evenings from January through April. These are events run by LL Bean. They are here on the MOAC calendar to make membership aware of them. Questions should be addressed to LL Bean. These events are held in the camping department atrium. MOACers often gather for a nightcap after.

Explore the history of the Moosehead lake region with historian Libby Bischof and archaeologist Nate Hamilton. Documentary materials including: artifacts, maps and photographs will highlight the history of the landscape and its inhabitants, from Native peoples and post contact European lifeways to contemporary residents and tourists. This hands-on approach to the past will provide attendees the opportunity to examine selected historic maps, photos and evidence of long-term human use of the lake and surrounding forest. We will highlight the importance of L.L.Bean, Lucius Hubbard, Thomas Sedgwick Steele, and the Maliseet people, as well as Mount Kineo, Indian Pond, and the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad to both the history and the future of the Moosehead Lake Region. Libby Bischof, PhD, Executive Director, Osher Map Library and Professor of History at the University of Southern Maine Nate Hamilton, PhD, Associate Professor of Archaeology at the University of Southern Maine
