A Pictorial History of Turner 



Turner Public Library


Music at The Gazebo


With its history playing an integral part in its unique sense of place, the Town of Turner is incredibly proud if its beginnings.  While these photographs (above) may be set in the distant past, many of the scenes are reflected in the present.


The public is cordially invited to attend the Music for Mavis summer concert series each Tuesday evening at The Gazebo.  The Gazebo is located on the lawn at the Leavitt Institute Building in the historic village center.  All concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. (6:00 p.m. during September).  So bring a lawn chair and consider pitching in when the hat is passed -- $5.00 is suggested -- that's how the musicians get paid.  For more information, call 207-754-0954.
