Over 125 years of preservation and study of
Kennebec County history (1891-2018)
Established in 1891, the Society has a growing collection of manuscripts, photographs and ephemera about people and places in Kennebec County that are not available in other archives.  Research and meeting facilities at 107 Winthrop Street, Augusta, include reading areas and online access to our database and the internet.  Volunteers perform the entire work of the Society and support comes from private funds. 

Book Sale Starts Saturday at 9 a.m.!!!

The KHS Book Sales scheduled for May 19, May 26, and June 2 will be
starting at 9 a.m. (not 10 a.m. as previously listed in our newsletter, the Kennebec Current) and run until 2 p.m.  The books will be sold in the society’s garage, located at 107 Winthrop Street in Augusta.  Hardbacks and trade paperbacks will be priced at $1.00 each and mass market paperbacks at 50 cents.  At 1 p.m., the prices drop to $1.00 a bag.  
Come on out and get your summer reading books!
