After careful consideration of the potential risks to our volunteers and visitors, the GHS Board has made the decision to remain closed to the public until further notice.   We regret that we need to take this approach, but feel that it is the wisest thing to do at this point in time.  We will revisit the situation later in the summer and hope to slowly re-open in the fall. 


However, that does not mean we are not available to help!!  Our volunteers are ready to answer any research questions that you may have.  Please email requests to and we will respond as soon as we can.  You may leave a message on 207-371-9200, but we may not reply right away since we are not in the building to get phone messages on a routine basis. 


Our genealogy database is always available. Just go to the Research tab above, select Genealogy, and click on the photo to start an inquiry.  If you need assistance, please feel free to email us.

If you would like to donate any items, please email us to set up an appointment to drop them off.
