For nearly 50 years Freeport Historical Society has made it their mission to contribute to our community by opening their doors and grounds to all who live and work in Freeport, Maine — whether it be on a bench in their all-volunteer garden at Harrington House on Main Street or on the peaceful 140 acres of open space at Pettengill Farm.
Besides providing a place to gather, The Freeport Historical Society has taken on an important community role as an educational resource for Freeport citizens young and old, by offering exhibits about local history utilizing their collections of nearly 300,000 artifacts as well as hundreds of years of written history. They offer arts and culture to a thriving community and dig into the past with genealogy research of local homes. The Historical Society receives no municipal funding for their operations while continuing to maintain and improve two large, historic properties, which they have done for over 40 years.
Renewing memberships are used to maintain existing programming, such as the annual Pettengill Farm Day, lectures, exhibits, school programs, and concerts. New and increased memberships allow the Historical Society to develop fresh and exciting new opportunities for our community.
