Through March 2021   MHS is relaunching our Bicentennial public programming with MAINE at 200, an exciting new virtual (Zoom) series! In live conversations, distinguished historians and speakers will explore how Maine became a State in 1820, what that has meant to Maine people, and how 13,000 years of history has shaped the complex issues that matter to Mainers today.   You won't find this series anywhere else! Presenters include James E. Francis, Sr; Lise Pelletier; Liam Riordan; Kate McMahon; Pulitzer prize winner Alan Taylor; Earle Shettleworth, Jr., and Colin Woodard.  Visit our Programs & Events page for updates on the complete series and how to register! Most programs are free and open to the public (unless noted as MHS Members Exclusive.) Click here for more info!

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.
