One of the main ways the Kennebec Historical Society achieves its goal of dissemination of knowledge of Kennebec County history is through public programs and lectures.
KHS provides these programs through the dues and donations of members. They are open to the public. A small voluntary donation from non-members is appreciated. The programs generally occur on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Locations vary. While most take place in Augusta, KHS also schedules speakers in other Kennebec County communities.
