2020  - History House is now in its eighty-third season. Unfortunately, we are currently closed to the public and don't know if or when we will reopen this summer. However, staff are working behind closed doors to carry on with our mission to protect, maintain, and promote Skowhegan’s cultural legacy.


Here’s what we plan to do:

  • The History House website (skowheganhistoryhouse, org) now offers virtual History House tours and will soon feature a video highlighting Wabanaki Culture and Heritage written and narrated by Indigenous Penobscot leader, James Francis.
  • Meanwhile, we are available via email and telephone for help with local, historical, and genealogical research. Please contact History House trustee Kay Marsh at grammy.kay.cee@gmail.com or by phone 207-465-7458.
  • We welcome visitors to our beautiful Heirloom Gardens. While in the gardens, we hope you’ll check out the Kennebec River overlook with its historic signage and river views and the River Bateau Exhibit.

We will announce any changes to our schedule both on this website and on our Face book page so please do stay tuned. For any other questions, please call the Skowhegan History House at 474-6632.  Thank you.
