Welcome to the Bangor Historical Society

Preserving, Protecting and Sharing Bangor’s History since 1864

Bangor, Maine, has a powerful past filled with heartwarming stories, commanding personalities and influential events that shaped the Queen City as we know it.

At the Bangor Historical Society we’re committed to preserving, protecting and sharing the rich history of Bangor and her people. We offer a variety of  programming, walking tours and special events. We also believe in being a part of our city’s vibrant community and welcome collaborations with our community partners. All of our activities are supported solely through the generous support of our members and friends. Memberships start at just $25 and help us to continue traditions that began with our founding in 1864. Not a member?  Learn more about the benefits of membership here.

Whether you join us for a walking tour, special event or step back in time at the Thomas A. Hill House Museum we promise an experience to remember.

The Thomas A. Hill House Museum is open for tours Monday through Saturday from 10am to 4pm June through Columbus Day. Private tours are also available.

We look forward to seeing you!
