The Woolwich Historical Society is a membership-based organization that is actively working to preserve Woolwich History.  We conduct oral history projects, Maine Memory Network projects in conjunction with the Maine Historical Society, genealogical research, record keeping, and archiving.  We preserve the 1810 farmhouse that comprises the Woolwich History Museum.

The Museum contains several restored rooms of items dating from the late 18th through the early 20th centuries.  All originated from Woolwich, or have a local link.  Our Museum is open during the summer months several times per week. We have several events, including our holiday event, at other times during the year, and we will be happy to open for school and other tours at any time throughout the year. The Society also provides educational programming for adults and children throughout the year.

Stock Stone Wall
Nequasset Meeting House, Woolwich ME

In October 2013, seven individuals built a “stock” stone wall under the direction of a dry stone walling instructor on the property between the Nequasset Meeting House and the cemetery. The wall is approximately 30’ long and 5 ½’ high. It is truly a masterpiece and, because the 7 wallers paid a tuition fee, there was no cost to the town. The wall will remain for centuries as a lasting tribute to their work

There is a strong desire to continue the project and build a second wall of approximately 10’ long. This section will be built of the same stone in the same fashion and create a natural opening between the Meeting House and the cemetery. We hope to build this second section in the spring of 2014.
