Shell Game: Did you know lobsters shed their shells? Adult male lobsters shed twice a year, females once a year. The new shell is soft for months as it hardens. The meat of soft-shell lobsters is sweeter and more tender.

Washburn Norlands

Norlands Living History  |  Nicol Miller

Maine Potato | Website

Nicol Miller is the Program Coordinator at the Washburn-Norlands Living History Center, Maine’s oldest living history museum, where visitors journey into the past and experience life on a farm in the 1800s. At Norlands, all the staff portray real people who lived in the neighborhood in the 19th-century. Nicol portrays “Edward Pratt” (b.1837 d.1913), who owned a farm three miles from the Norlands. As Farmer Pratt, Nicol leads educational programs for schoolchildren, teaching them how to care for livestock, to farm using traditional methods, and to develop a personal connection to the past. With Norlands since 2014, Nicol has a background in art, archaeology and anthropology.

The Norlands preserves the heritage and traditions of 19th-century rural life in Maine, celebrates the achievements of Livermore’s Washburn family, and uses living history methods to make the values and activities of the past relevant to present and future generations.

One Potato, Two Potato…What happens to potatoes that don’t make the grade? Many companies in Maine are conducting research to see if waste potatoes can be used to make plastic products and biodegradable packaging. So someday, you might carry your potatoes in a bag made from potatoes!
