So Much to Learn!

Part of the Society’s mission is to educate citizens in the Town of Gouldsboro about its history, making use of the holdings from our archives and artifacts housed at the Blance Archive and the Old Town House Museum.

The Museum exhibits include tools from various trades, items from 19th and early 20th century everyday life, displays of photos and memorabilia from each of Gouldsboro’s villages, a ship and marine collection, a Native American collection, the Taft Point Shell Heap collection (which includes items from early Native American inhabitants as well as items of everyday home life in the community), and many more surprises!

Our programs for school children are especially important to our mission. Currently, there are two outreach programs that can be taken to local schools: Native Americans -- the Taft Point (1928) and Jones Cove (1936-37) Digs; and The Codfish Story.

Our Education Committee is eager to help schools and other educational organizations with programs and projects connected to Gouldsboro history. During warm weather months, arrangements can be made for school classes and other groups to visit our Museum for a guided group tour and a presentation on our holdings.
