Located in Farmington, Maine, the historical society is touted by state and preservation agencies as being "far ahead of most historical societies." the Farmington Historical Society has been procuring and preserving Farmington's incredible history since 1961.
Farmington's history needs your help! Purchasing The Octagon and restoring it, as well as finishing the North Church as a history and community center are the center of this year's capital campaign.
The Octagon is a National Register Historic landmark and located in the downtown's National Historic District. The North Church is just 150 ft. away, making this a very unique opportunity.
We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
Franklin Savings Bank donates
$25,000 to Capital Campaign.
Historical Society members J. Maxham, T. Davis, B. Davis meet with FSB representatives T. Sawyer and T. Thompson.
The Ramsdell Octagon House was purchased on May 3rd! The FHS is very excited to help preserve this Farmington landmark in the middle of the downtown and historic district.
Members are currently sorting and organizing the contents and plan to open to the public in mid-June.
Donations and support to assist with renovations of this building, as well as the next-door North Church are appreciated.
