Maine Historical Society
On May 8th, 1843, Zelia A. Lunt of Westbrook, visited Westbrook Seminary, for a "short fortnight," sitting in on lectures on "decisions of character," temperance, "cultivation of temper," and botany.
Less than a week later, on May 13, 1843, she turned 18.
Apparently Zelia liked what she saw during her spring visit to Westbrook Seminary because in the fall of 1843 she enrolled for a full term, anticipating an "interesting and profitable school."
