Woolwich is rich in history, but our local modern businesses are making their mark for the future of  the town, and the state.  Below, see links to some of our sister historical societies, and links to some of our local businesses, who have supported the Woolwich Historical Society.  Their support—and yours—are crucial to making sure that the history of Maine remains alive.
Bath Historical Society
The past of Woolwich is tied up with the past of Bath.  Both shipbuilding and seafaring towns, these sister cities share a great deal, not least their families through marriage and movement.  The Bath Historical Society is also called the Sagadahoc History and Genealogy Room, located at the Patten Free Library.

Georgetown Historical Society
Woolwich was part of the town of Georgetown until 1759.  For information on local families and local history, the Georgetown Historical Society is a key resource.

Edgecomb Historical Society
Another small river town on Sheepscot Bay, Edgecomb has a rich history, as well as a fort where many Woolwich residents took refuge during the Indian wars.
Maine Historical Society
The Maine Historical Society is the repository of the Maine Memory Network, as well as an astounding collection of documents, including a copy of the original Declaration of Independence.

The Shelter Institute
The Shelter Institute was instrumental in the rebuilding of our barn.  Their ancient post and beam style of construction was typical for the construction of outbuildings and homes in the early part of Woolwich’s history.  Learn how to build your own!

Maine Maritime Museum
The Maine Maritime Museum, located just over the river in Bath, has a large collection of maritime artifacts, and the restored home of a local shipbuilder.  It is well worth a visit!
Town of Woolwich
The town of Woolwich, ME graciously supports the Woolwich Historical Society.  For more information on the town, and other activities in Woolwich, see their website.
