Historical Societies exist to tell a community’s history through objects and archival records. The exhibition highlights aspects of the town’s history through never-before-displayed objects from its permanent collection.

Forty unexpected and compelling artifacts in the exhibition weave together almost 400 years of Castine history. Organized by a team of community members and staff, the objects selected for exhibition tell Castine stories which are both familiar, like the town’s Revolutionary War history, and unexpected, such as its African American history.

The Historical Society exhibits are free and open from June 10 – September 2, Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.; Sunday, 1-4 p.m. Fall hours are September 7 – October 14, Friday, Saturday, Monday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.; Sunday, 1-4 p.m. Free one-hour walking tours of Castine are offered Friday, Saturday, and Monday at 10:00 beginning June 22. No reservations are needed to take a walking tour.
