Enjoy Maine's Bicentennial History from Home! Components of our major Bicentennial exhibition are now a click away, on Maine Memory Network! Kick back with a mug of java or tea and discover that the history of how Maine became a state is rooted in the stories of people. The separation from Massachusetts in 1820 had different meanings and implications for residents grounded in geography, culture, race, and economic standing. View the exhibition.
