My Maine Stories

Everyone has a story... What's yours?


Your story should be, in some way, about Maine.

  • You may upload a maximum of 4 photos along with a written story or video. The video will be in lieu of the first photo.
  • Stories are reviewed for pertinent information and format, but not copy edited.
  • The majority of stories will go online after they are cataloged by a Maine Historical Society (MHS) staff person. We may need to contact you about your submission if we have questions or quality concerns.
  • MHS has the right to refuse any story if the guidelines or terms of use are not followed.
  • Watch this video for instructions on how to add your story. Adding Your Story - Video
