Preserving, Protecting and Sharing Bangor’s History since 1864

Bangor, Maine, has a powerful past filled with heartwarming stories, commanding personalities and influential events that shaped the Queen City as we know it.

In 2015 look for increased programming, walking tours, special events, community collaborations, continued protection and preservation of our collection and so much more–all supported by our members and friends.

Whether you join us for a walking tour, special event or step back in time at the Thomas A. Hill House Museum we promise an experience to remember.

The Thomas A. Hill House Museum is open for tours Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm beginning June 2. Private tours are also available.

We look forward to seeing you!
