Vassalboro Historical Society

What many of you may not realize is how much planning, work and time goes into updating each of our Vassalboro Historical Society displays. Starting with a decision of what will be displayed from our thousands of artifacts, to where it is located, to where it will be displayed, to how it will be displayed and then making it happen with the help of our loyal volunteers, our curator, Julie Lyon takes the lead.

Building Director Dave Bolduc assists with the help of his crew, Paul Duplessie, Roy Brackett, and Greg Seamans to retrieve, move, hang and adjust display items at Julie's direction.

Priscilla Delisle, Pam Perro and new volunteer Dawn Cates assist weekly in making sure the items are sorted and ready for display, then with Julie pull it all together in the finished display which allows visitors a glimpse back in time.

Helen LaFleur has been clipping newspaper articles from Vassalboro for many years while Simone Antworth has been diligent in transcribing and typing old documents.

THANKS to all of the above for making it happen!

Check out the pictures below for a behind the scenes look at the process.
