Description

This activity has been cancelled.

Before Poland Spring was a famous spring water brand, it was a celebrated inn built by the Ricker family. In 1844, Hiram Ricker, grandson of the original owner , discovered the fresh taste of the spring water at the original source. He claimed that the water cured him of his chronic dyspepsia and just like that, a wonder tonic was born. We will have a guided tour of the bottling museum (not the bottling facility) and learn about the key role Poland Spring and the Ricker family played in developing Maine’s tourism industry. If time permits, we may be able to visit other buildings on the property. Please bring cash in case you want to visit the Maine State Building. We may make an ice cream stop after our tour.
