Together with the American Legion Duffy-Wescott Post 85, we will be hosting an exhibit this Memorial Day weekend at the Holt House to recognize Maine’s military history, and salute those who served or lost their lives while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

We are hoping those in the community will share their history relating to American wars by lending any military memorabilia or documents for display at the exhibition. 
Desired artifacts include uniforms, medals and insignia, service documents, photographs, letters, and journals. Wartime ephemera such as brochures, postcards, leaflets, programs, theater tickets and souvenirs are also wanted. The artifacts would be returned after Memorial Day.

Those who may wish to lend their artifacts or document for the exhibition may contact us at
