Preserving Treasures of the Past as an Investment for the Future
Historical Society of Wells & Ogunquit
Established in 1954
Working in co-operation with the Ogunquit Heritage Museum
Our "Woodies in the Cove" fundraiser will now be taking place on August 29, same time and same place, with the parade to the Cove in the afternoon! We hope Mother Nature will be kinder to us this coming Saturday. Check out our Programs and Events page for more information.
In case you haven't had a chance to read the plaques in front of our building in Wells, here is one commemorating our unique status as the first "Meeting-house" in Wells and the second in Maine.
The Mission of the Historical Society of Wells & Ogunquit is to maintain The Historic Meetinghouse and to operate the Society in order to foster an understanding and appreciation of history for the enlightenment and education of residents and visitors. The Society strives to be a vibrant, visible, community organization that is recognized as a principal repository of the historic past; and, to be a vital participant in the understanding of the present and a prism through which to shape the future.
