The Woolwich Historical Society is an organization that is membership-based and works for the preservation of Woolwich history. They are actively working all year round with the help of the Maine Historical Society to conduct exhibits, shows, historical projects, archiving and record keeping about the rich history of the Woolwich Area. Moreover, they also preserve an 1810 farmhouse known today as the Woolwich History Museum.
The museum is open during the summer months as well as several times a week. It features several authentic and restored rooms filled with artifacts dating from the 18th until the early 20th centuries. Included are Native American artifacts as well as those of the early settlers in the area. Additionally, there are also rooms depicting the lifestyle of the people who were the first to live in the Woolwich area.
There are exhibits of old meeting houses, farms, barns as well as household rooms like a pantry, a kitchen, a nursery and sewing rooms. The society conducts pre-arranged tours for groups or students throughout the year. Moreover, they also conduct educational programming about history for many students and adults all year through.
