What can a person say about Historical Societies? I think we all love them, and if you look hard enough you will probably see one in every town. Recently, my husband and I passed quite a few, and I decided to take some photos. Time didn't permit us to stop, but that was okay, as we had been in several, and my husband is a member of one as well.
The Kennebunkport Historical Society in Maine was simply darling, in an old one room schoolhouse. I noticed that they are only open six hours a week, three hours on two days. You had better be extremely prepared when you go there. It was closed when we stopped.

The next three photos are of the Chelmsford Historical Society.
Although I lived and went to High School in this town, it wasn't until the past month that I discovered where the Society is located (not in the center of town, like most).
