On February 8, 1897, Dr. John L.M. Willis founded the Eliot Historical Society and became its first president.

Today the Eliot Historical Society endeavors to preserve the town’s long and vibrant history through the collection of artifacts and documents.

The Historical Society welcomes donations of Eliot related materials: books, calendars, artifacts, photos, advertising items, booklets, military items from local servicemen. Please remember the Eliot Historical Society when you are moving or cleaning out the family home or the home of a family member. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

The Society’s monthly meetings are open to the public and offer interesting and educational programs pertaining to Eliot’s history.

The Society meets on the first Monday of the month.  

Join us for our Annual Summer Picnic scheduled for Monday, August 1, 2022, to be held at the Eliot Boat Basin, located on Route 103, Eliot, Maine.  The grill will be fired up for those who would like to use.  5 pm.

We are off for the month of July enjoying the summer in Maine.  We hope you are too!
