about us

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.
