Nearly 130 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.
