Tours of COA turrets offered Aug. 10 and 17

BAR HARBOR – The public is invited to take a tour of the Turrets Renovation Project at College of the Atlantic.

COA’s Director of Buildings and Grounds, Millard Dority, will take guests up on the scaffolding for a bird’s eye view of this remarkable National Historic landmark. The tours, which will last two hours and include coffee with President Collins, are at 9:30 a.m. on August 10 and 17.

Reconstruction began in April 2013 with the immediate goal to reconstruct and preserve the outer envelope for the next century. The College is replacing 99 windows, over 20 doors, 7 chimneys, and the slate roof. In addition, the entire exterior of the building needs to be repainted.

Space is limited. Contact Lynn Boulger at 207-801-5620 or [email protected] in advance.
