Trustees of the Centre d'Heritage Franco-Americain are, seated from left, Mrs. Grace Marcotte, Mrs. Leclerc Gosselin, Mrs. Dutil, Mrs. Conrad Doucette. Standing, from left, are Raoul Pinette, unidentified, and unidentified.

The Centre d'Héritage Franco-Américain (Franco-American Heritage Center) was founded in Lewiston in 1971-2, with the aim of preserving what was then seen as a disappearing culture. The non-profit group funded arts and cultural performances, and operated a library and museum until 1989, when the group disbanded and the Centre's assets were transferred to the University of Maine. These artifacts are now part of the Franco-American Collection at the University of Southern Maine.

This photograph was probably taken at the Centre's first location, at the Intown Manor, at 81 Ash Street in Lewiston.
