Magic Falls Rafting

Maine white water rafting is more than “just a business” to us. It is even more than the thrill of whitewater. It is a time to shed worries and stress – a time to smile and laugh, a time to be part of the river’s unending flow. Come feel and enjoy our natural high. Let the river be yours, too. Magic Falls Rafting Company strives to individualize your experience by keeping our groups small. We aim first for safety. Second, for a rafting trip that touches the heart and excites the soul! That’s our mission.

Magic Falls Rafting Company was founded in 1989 by David Neddeau. His love of the whitewater rivers and his knowledge says it all. He wanted to create a whitewater rafting trip that everyone would remember, from the first minute they arrived at Magic Falls until they left. This is probably the reason Magic Falls has had so much success!

Redington Museum

The museum is housed in a handsome two story home built in 1814 by pioneer Waterville settler Asa Redington, a veteran of three enlistments in the Revolutionary War and a member of George Washington’s elite Honor Guard. After the revolution he developed the water rights at Ticonic Falls and with his sons Samuel and William established a thriving flour mill on the banks of the Kennebec River. The father of six sons and three daughters, Asa built this substantial home for his son William. Fashioned of great hewn timbers, all hand pegged, it still features the original spiral staircase, fireplaces with period woodwork, and floors of wide pumpkin pine. The newel post in the entrance exhibits the “contractor’s peace stone,” a small smooth polished stone signifying in Colonial times that the project had been completed to both the owner’s and builder’s satisfaction. Today five rooms are furnished with antiques of the late 18th and early 19th centuries from the Redington family, the family of pioneer attorney Timothy Boutelle, and from other early local families. The house has been open to the public as a museum since 1927 and was entered in the National Register of Historic Places.

Waterville Creates!

Waterville Creates! promotes, supports, and grows our community‘s arts and cultural assets in order to strengthen Waterville as a vibrant creative center, increase access to creative opportunities for residents and visitors, and advance community and economic development goals.

In 2014, Waterville Creates! was established under the existing Waterville Regional Arts and Community Center (WRACC). Since that time, Waterville Creates! (WC!) has served as the primary coordinating entity for arts and cultural programming in Waterville by working directly with the Colby College Museum of Art, Maine Film Center, Waterville Public Library, Waterville Opera House, and Common Street Arts (CSA) to strengthen partnerships, expand collaborative programming, and launch new marketing initiatives.

Through the generous support of the Harold Alfond Foundation, WC! has also been able to increase collaborative partnerships with the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce, City of Waterville, Colby College, Thomas College, Kennebec Valley Community College, MaineGeneral and Inland hospitals, and area businesses. Additionally, this support has provided unique opportunities to foster partnerships through the creation of new initiatives such as the Partner Incentive Grant program that incentivizes and supports increased collaborative ventures like the Waterville Rocks! Summer Concert Series. This grant program has allowed for broader and more inclusive programming that has a profound impact on the cultural footprint within the community.
