In case you haven't had a chance to read the plaques in front of our building in Wells, here is one commemorating our unique status as the first "Meeting-house" in Wells and the second in Maine.
The Mission of the Historical Society of Wells & Ogunquit is to maintain The Historic Meetinghouse and to operate the Society in order to foster an understanding and appreciation of history for the enlightenment and education of residents and visitors. The Society strives to be a vibrant, visible, community organization that is recognized as a principal repository of the historic past; and, to be a vital participant in the understanding of the present and a prism through which to shape the future.
