Standish Historical Society at the Tompson House

The Standish Historical Society has found a place to expand after many years of searching. Over the past many years the Historical Society has been seeking a second location to house exhibits and the extensive archive of records related to Standish and Maine history. This site will enable us to present various exhibits and give an easily accessible space for research into our archives.  The Tompson house is located between two of historic sites the Old Red Church and the Marrett House. Check back more details to come and how people can help make this project a success.
