Organization Information

Mission Statement

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 Historical Society shares the rich history of the mid-coast region with residents and tourists alike. The Society collects, preserves and interprets the history of Brunswick, Topsham, and Harpswell through educational programs, exhibitions, and museums.

Founded in 1888, the Pejepscot Historical Society is the fourth oldest in the state of Maine. The Society 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.

The Pejepscot Historical Society 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.
