Spring, Winter, Fall: Bowdoin College was founded in 1794 as a men’s college with only a handful of students. Since then, it has evolved to house students from every state as well as foreign countries. Bowdoin pines rim the 200 acre campus and its amazing museums. The Peary-MacMillian Arctic museum is filled with photos and artifacts and Inuit carvings. Most all of the items were collected by the founders. There is also the Museum of Art with a quite impressive collection of 19th and 20th century art. Be sure to stop at the new “Black Box” theater as well. This is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon. As always, admission is free.
