MHS Celebrates 200 Years

banner for MHS 200th anniversary

MHS proudly commemorates 200 years of preserving and sharing Maine's story in 2022. Few organizations can boast two centuries of staying power! Like Maine itself, the story of MHS is one of constant evolution, reflecting the interests and passions of its leaders, and the times.

Grounded in collections, historical scholarship, and research, our work has expanded to include engaging exhibitions, events, and digital offerings to meet community needs. Entering our third century of service, MHS is committed to sharing YOUR stories and to recognizing the contributions that people throughout the state and beyond make to Maine's unique sense of place.

We look forward to celebrating our anniversary with you throughout the year. Join us!
