The Kingdom Schoolhouse, a one room schoolhouse that was restored by community members and is operated by the Montville Historical Society, will be open during July and August on Monday evenings, from 6:30-8:00 PM. The Society has accumulated many interesting artifacts that illustrate the lives of the people who settled and built Montville and this part of Maine. The Schoolhouse itself is a restored example of our history that would be a great place to bring summer visitors. A member of the Society will be available to answer questions.

Fire Chief’s report on Fire Danger 
            Due to the extremely dry conditions this fire season, I am asking all residents to be extra vigilant and report to the contacts listed below any and all sighted smoke conditions or open burning that cannot be explained.  The sooner we investigate these situations, the easier it will be to mitigate them.   Any fires from lightning or other causes are of a higher concern under these types of conditions.   Thank you for your cooperation.
