The Vassalboro Historical Society is interested in the past and present history of the town. The Society holds meetings at the Historical Society building six times a year, on the odd-numbered months, with speakers relating to local and state history. We maintain a museum on Rt. 32 in East Vassalboro, which is open for tours on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., except the museum tours are not offered from December through April for fuel efficiency purposes. The building is also open at other times by appointment. The museum has a fine collection of three-dimensional objects.
In addition, we have extensive library holdings. The library also contains:
