On Wednesday students that joined an after-school club about Henry David Thoreau traveled part of the Thoreau-Wabanaki Trail. They saw literature and local history with a modified version of “sweetcakes” eaten in the Maine Woods in the Mid 1850’s at a soda fountain which embodied the 1950’s. They saw the first mountain firetower in the U.S., a similar “steamer” like that of Thoreau’s time and visited the headwaters of the Kennebec River. Mr. Thoreau traveled with our band of adventurer scholars and started at what he called the “Moosehorns” which he say labeled as “Monson” on his journey into the North Woods, around Chesuncook, and onto Chesuncook.
