Maine at 200
Maine Historical Society

Through March 2021   MHS is relaunching our Bicentennial public programming with MAINE at 200, an exciting new virtual (Zoom) series! In live conversations, distinguished historians and speakers will explore how Maine became a State in 1820, what that has meant to Maine people, and how 13,000 years of history has shaped the complex issues that matter to Mainers today.   You won't find this series anywhere else! Presenters include James E. Francis, Sr; Lise Pelletier; Liam Riordan; Kate McMahon; Pulitzer prize winner Alan Taylor; Earle Shettleworth, Jr., and Colin Woodard.  Visit our Programs & Events page for updates on the complete series and how to register! Most programs are free and open to the public (unless noted as MHS Members Exclusive.) Click here for more info!
