Description

The Castine Historical Society, located in the Abbott School and Samuel P. Grindle House on the town common, is a 501(c)3 organization that serves as a window into Castine’s extraordinary past. Our permanent and summer exhibitions, lectures, house and garden tours and historic reenactments would not occur without the energy and dedication of our many volunteers and members.

The Castine Historical Society is collecting historical information and accepting objects on behalf of the Society. The collections—including photographs, documents, artifacts, maps, essays, research notes, books, and paintings—were kept in members’ homes and in Emerson Hall. From the beginning, the collections were in frequent use for displays, research, programs, educational projects, and publications.

Mission

We seek to invigorate our community through collaborative exploration and stewardship of our region’s rich history, engaging residents and visitors of all ages in Castine’s extraordinary past and, through it, that of New England and North America.

Artifact Collections

The collections—including photographs, documents, artifacts, maps, essays, research notes, books, and paintings—were kept in members’ homes and in Emerson Hall. From the beginning, the collections were in frequent use for displays, research, programs, educational projects, and publications.

We’re committed to the long-term preservation of historical materials and to making the collections available for research as well as to support projects centered on community growth. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.
