Windham Historical Society(WHS) is a group of volunteers who believe in having fun with history.
Throughout the year, we offer interesting programs and creative fundraising events to raise awareness of our town's rich past. We enthusiastically welcome new members and we enjoy welcoming visitors at any time.
The Society is located in the old Windham Town House building on Windham Center Road in Windham, Maine. There, you'll find an extensive collection of maps, town documents, cemetery records, journals, diaries, letters, school yearbooks, organization records, town reports, genealogy files, clothing, tools and implements, housewares, photographs, publications and artwork.
A library is available with dozens of books on many topics as well as an excellent selection of genealogy books.
We have collections of war memorabilia, encompassing all wars from the Revolutionary forward; furniture, household items, children’s toys, farming and shoemaking tools; bibles, coins, flags and over 24 large indexed scrapbooks including news items. Many notebooks with photos and information on houses and their history are available.
