Welcome to the Readfield Historical Society
Hopefully, it will give you a peek at our
collections of artifacts, historical documents, old
photographs and other objects, all related to the
interesting history of this attractive village
located among the gently rolling hills and lakes
of central Maine.
Our collection is housed in an old schoolhouse,
built in 1853 and located in Readfield Depot. Our
upstairs holds most of our exhibits and is
handicap accessible. Downstairs, we have
restored the old schoolroom for our Day In A
Rural Schoolhouse Program. We have an area
for doing research plus an historian and a
genealogist on call. We invite you to visit our
attractive Museum and research center.
For specific information, click on one of the links
to your left. They will lead you to somewhat more
detailed information on what we have.
Remember, we are an all volunteer society and
the cataloging of items, especially documents, is
an on-going process. We always have more than
will show on this website, so an actual visit is
important for thorough research.
Hours of Operation:
from June until
If we do not have a volunteer to staff the building for a
day, we will not open; however, if you call 207-377-2299,
we will be happy to open for you.
