Our Partners: Contributing Organizations and Communities

Maine Memory Network (MMN) provides many ways for local historical organizations and their communities to share their history. This page provides a jumping off point to find historical items, online exhibits, and other resources created by organizations and local teams in communities in every corner of Maine.

Learn how your organization or community can share its history!

Community History Websites

The following websites were created by community teams comprised of historical organizations, schools, libraries, and other groups with a vested interest in local history. Our first community websites were created in 2006-07 under a pilot program that then became the more formal Maine Community Heritage Project in 2008–2010 under a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

We hope you enjoy visiting the sites. Although grants are no longer available for this project, if your community is interested in building a local history website, please visit Share Your Local History to find out how.
