Bangor Historical Society
159 Union Street
Bangor 04401
Phone : 207-942-5766 Fax : 207-942-1910
The Bangor Historical Society was established in 1864 by a group of 22 men led by Judge John Godfrey, who were interested in collecting, preserving and interpreting local history for the public. It is the second-oldest historical society in the state, the oldest being the Maine Historical Society in Portland. The Bangor Historical Society and the Bangor Public Library in the past shared storage and meeting space. Before the Great Fire of 1911, both organizations occupied a floor in a building on State Street, which is now the Bangor Savings Bank. Everything was destroyed during the Great Fire of 1911. A year after the fire, the Society opened in the new Bangor Public Library on Harlow Street. Residents began to donate their treasurers to the Society again, and by the 1950s the Society needed to move to a location that provided more space for the expanding collection. The Sons of Union Veterans, the caretakers of the GAR Memorial Home, the Thomas A. Hill House, agreed to let the Society use this house; the Society opened its new home to the public during the summer of 1953.
