Over 125 years of preservation and study of
Kennebec County history (1891-2019)

Established in 1891, the Society has a growing collection of manuscripts, photographs and ephemera about people and places in Kennebec County that are not available in other archives.  Research and meeting facilities at 107 Winthrop Street, Augusta, include reading areas and online access to our database.  Volunteers perform the majority of the work of the Society and support comes from donations and grants.

Come Join KHS at the
Lithgow Library for the
Volunteer Fair!

Are you looking for an opportunity to figure out how to help in your community? Join us to chat about how you can volunteer at KHS!

The Volunteer Fair takes place this Saturday, March 23 from 9:30am-11:30am at the Lithgow Library located at 45 Winthrop Street in Augusta.
