About Us

Our dedicated Board of Directors, support staff and volunteers working together with our town and community to preserve the history of Blue Hill, Maine.

The Blue Hill Historical Society was founded in 1902 for the purpose of preserving the heritage of the Town of Blue Hill, Maine, U.S.A.
The Society’s home and headquarters is in the Holt House, a historic house museum at the center of the town of Blue Hill, at 3 Water Street, at the intersections of Rt. 177, and Main Street.
The house was built in 1815 by Jeremiah Thorndike Holt. Adjacent to the house is the carriage house built in the 1980’s which offers a large space for larger items in the collection, a vault with historic documents and a place to gather for presentations.
The Holt House Museum is open during the summer from June through September.
