Exhibit at the Jellerson School:  Shipbuilding & Seafaring: Shipbuilding & Cargos and Destinations

Welcome to the Bowdoinham Historical Society

BHS News and Announcements:

Lancaster-Bishop Room: Third Floor Coombs Municipal Building.
Tuesdays 10-12 & 2-5. We have great conversations, and we even get some work done making Bowdoinham history accessible to all. Everyone Welcome!

Continuing transcription of Bowdoinham documents and letters from the past is revealing interesting stories and pictures of life in Bowdoinham in the past. We can use help with this project as well as sorting, accessioning, and making accessible our collections.

We are still looking for old cameras and other photographic equipment, as well as photographs from the past.
