KENNEBUNKPORT — The Kennebunkport Historical Society is offering residents and visitors an opportunity to immerse themselves in the remarkable history of the Kennebunks with the launch of A Walk Through History, a free monthly lecture series focusing on historic topics of interest.

The series begins at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 2, with a presentation by Kirsten Camp, executive administrator of KHS, entitled “From Walkers to Bushes: A History of a Family.” Camp’s presentation offers fascinating insights into generations of history of the Bush family in the Kennebunks dating back to the late 19th century.

The series continues on May 7 with “Shipbuilding in Kennebunkport” followed by “Early Photography” in June, “The Town of Three” in July, “Kenneth Roberts” in August, “The Kennebunkport Playhouse” in September, “Haunted Kennebunkport” in October, and “The History of Sewing” in November.

This series is generously underwritten in part by Kennebunk Savings, Camden National Bank and Pack Maynard. Discussion and refreshments will follow each presentation.

The April and May lectures will be held at the KHS Pasco Center at 125 North St. in Kennebunkport. The summer and fall presentations are planned for the fully renovated Town House School at 135 North St.. Both buildings are handicap accessible.

While the programs are free to the public, donations to KHS are encouraged.
