Our mission is to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell, Maine, and to share our diverse heritage for the enrichment of all--natives and tourists alike.
The Pejepscot History Center shares the rich history of the mid-coast region with residents and tourists alike. PHC collects, preserves and interprets the history of Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell through educational programs, exhibitions, and museums.
Founded in 1888 as Pejepscot Historical Society, (now) Pejepscot History Center is the fourth oldest in the state of Maine. PHC was operated solely by volunteers for much of its existence. It now employs full-time and part-time staff, but still heavily relies on volunteers for its day-to-day operations.
PHC operates three museums: the Joshua L. Chamberlain Museum, the Skolfield-Whittier House, and the Pejepscot Museum. We provide guided tours, educational programs, historical resources and expertise. Additionally, we provide assistance with local history research.
