Nearly 130 years of preservation and study of
Kennebec County history (1891-2020)


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.

________________

KHS will be closed to the general public as of March 18th 2020, until further notice.  This closing is in an effort to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), by encouraging all to practice the recommended social distancing.  We encourage our members to call, email or write us if they have a request for information. These requests will be answered at such time as our volunteers return and we are back to business as usual. 

Thank you for your continued support!

KHS is also postponing its
monthly presentations
