Historic Hallowell

Our Work and Our Team

The seeds of this effort can be traced back to the founders of our City, to the generous patrons who funded our library, built our City Hall, started business, worked in schools, factories and farms. Organizations like the Row House, that works to preserve Hallowell’s architectural and culture resources, the Hallowell Area Board of Trade striving to make our city a great place to live, learn and do business and the Firemen’s Association committed to not only protecting our lives and property, but saving the artifacts of its own history.

A city historic project, The Museum in the Streets, served as a impetus to this effort. The nineteen-sign, illustrated walking tour, reminded us again of the richness of our historical resource. Each of the stops along the walking tour is an entry point to just one aspect of Hallowell history. The museum development team, from its first meetings, envisioned a web-based presentation of Historic Hallowell. This is the beginning of that exhibit. The work will never be completed. We keep discovering the old and creating the new!
