Preserving and Presenting the History of Cherryfield, Maine

The Cherryfield-Narraguagus Historical Society was formed in 1974 by J. Phillip Harriman and Margery Brown. The founding purpose of the SocietADoy was to preserve the history of Cherryfield before any more of it was lost forever. We were very fortunate that many townspeople donated artifacts and family histories to the society. We have a great deal of information on the lumbering industry and the mills in town. We are open to the public during the summer and by appointment. We are available to any schools in the area for tours and go to the schools to do presentations if asked. We feel that opening up the past to our children is very important. It makes one more connected to their community if they understand the history of their town. Our goal is to bridge the past to the future.

We are currently working on the museum building. Future displays will include a lady’s bedroom, a school room, and Grandma’s Attic. We are also collaborating with Destination Cherryfield to update the former Historic Walking Tour Brochure.

The Cherryfield-Narraguagus Historical Society Museum is open during the summer, currently only by appointment.  We plan to post regular hours shortly!

Visit our exhibits on early settlements here in Cherryfield, the local blueberry industry, our historic dynamo power plant, and much more.

We also have a genealogical library and provide genealogical research services.

Please contact us if you are interested in some great genealogical information on our town, its citizens, and Cherryfield heritage!
