Thompson House

    Over the past several years there have been several properties Standish Historical Society has attempted to acquire.  The Old Town Hall in Standish and Luce house, and several other properties  near the Old Red Church. The focus is now on putting together a plan to make the Thompson House the new home for Standish Historical Society. This property would meet current and future needs of the Historical Society.

Another Home

     

Standish Historical Society has been housed in the second floor of the Old Red Church in Standish for over 40 years. The collection of artifacts and manuscripts have filled the spaces available. There has been an effort over many years to secure a second location in Standish for expansion. The vision is to have a space in which education, research, and preservation needs of the community can be better met. At this time the historical society is undertaking a major fundraising effort to secure funds in order to establish a new home. If you are interested in helping out with this drive there will be a public meeting on Thursday March 15  2018 at 6:30 pm at Standish Town Hall. 
Donations may be mailed to:
