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 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.  

Our next meeting will be on Monday, May 2nd at 7pm and will be held at the Eliot Congregational Church located at 1361 State Road in Eliot.  We will also host this meeting via ZOOM for those who cannot attend in person.  To join us via ZOOM, please contact us at info@eliothistoricalsociety.org.
