The purpose of the Westbrook Historical Society is to bring together those people interested in the history of Westbrook, Maine and to discover, collect, and preserve any materials and objects that establish and illustrate the history of the area.

The members of the Society are the stewards of the heritage of our city. Westbrook has an exceedingly rich and diverse history, richer than most. We don't want any of it to be lost or forgotten, and with these motives we have become central to its preservation. In fact, our motto is, "A Society That Preserves the Past." We do that as surrogates for everyone in Westbrook and, in a very true civic sense, for the city itself.

Please explore our site: visit our Collections and research materials; attend the Programs we offer; enjoy our Activities where you can see our Interesting Photo of the Month.
