What do these things have in common? A Mt. Katahdin watercolor. A crayon-enhanced photograph of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. A needlework sampler by a 14-year-old. A Maine restaurant sign. They are just some of the fascinating items newly acquired by MHS, and featured in this lecture hall gallery exhibit. Each of the items provided a fresh perspective about Maine history by adding depth to an existing group of materials in our collections, or by introducing an entirely new subject.

Maine Things: Recent Museum Acquisitions was on view in the Shettleworth Lecture Hall.
