Baldwin Historical Society

Baldwin Historical Society Facts

Founding:
The Baldwin Historical Society was organized in 1991. Prior to this, the Brown Memorial Library historical committee served to organize historical materials donated to the library and placed in the historical wing. It was agreed that a historical society might be able to accomplish more and so it was decided to incorporate.

Mission:
The purpose of the society is to develop and promote interest in the history of the town of Baldwin, Maine, and to collect, preserve, research, and disseminate historical and genealogical information relating to Baldwin and its inhabitants.

The Society is responsible for the care, preservation, cataloging and display of the historical collection of the Brown Memorial Library Association so long as it is authorized by the association to do so.

Collections:
The Baldwin Historical Society is home to many local historic artifacts and rare books.

Facilities:
The Baldwin Historical Society is housed in the Brown Memorial Library in East Baldwin.

Since the completion of the expansion of the Brown Memorial Library the Society now occupies a beautiful separate historical wing downstairs.

Meetings:
The Society meets at 7 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month in the William Curtis Pierce Community Room at the Brown Memorial Library. These regular meetings are open to the public. Each meeting consists of a short business meeting followed by a program and refreshments.
