On January 10, 1888, 16 local citizens created PHS, the fourth historical society to be formed in Maine. To put our beginnings into perspective, just three days later, the National Geographic Society was founded in Washington, D.C.!
In other words, we’ve been around for a long time (14 decades!). Through it all, and with community support, we’ve collected, preserved, and shared the memories of Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell.
Our 2018 Annual Fund budget represents about 15 percent of our entire operating revenue. In 2018, that means raising at least $25,000. Please share in the celebration of our 130th anniversary with a generous gift that acknowledges this incredible milestone!
We have ambitious plans for 2018, and we need your support today to make them happen. On behalf of the entire organization, thank you for supporting this venerable institution. We look forward to serving you for years to come.
