Longtime CP Debuts New Exhibit

Page Terrace, Fairfield, ca. 1930, part of the Good Will-Hinckley campus, and one of the images in the new L. C. Bates Museum exhibit.

A recipient of a Maine Memory Network grant in the spring of 2011, the L. C. Bates Museum in Hinckley–part of the Good Will Home Association–recently unveiled its new exhibit on the history of the Good Will campus landscape.

“Good Will-Hinckley: Building a Landscape” charts how Good Will founder, George Walter Hinckley, along with architects Carl Rust Parker and the Olmsted Brothers, envisioned and created a village atmosphere that would serve as a home-like haven for the children living there.

A MMN Contributing Partner (CP) for years, L. C. Bates Museum uploaded a whopping 300+ new images during their grant project period (23 of which appear in the exhibit). This makes for a total of 421 items on Maine Memory for the CP.

A previous exhibit on the Hinckley legacy–“George W. Hinckley and Needy Boys and Girls”–was written by MMN curator Candace Kanes and features images from both the L. C. Bates Museum/Good Will and Maine Historical Society collections.
