Supporting the Museum
There are many ways you can support the Chebeague Island Historical Society. Our members, first coming together in 1984 to create the Society, continue to support our mission: “To enrich the lives of Chebeague residents and visitors by the acquisition and preservation of antiquities and documents and by researching and recording the story of the island’s past and present.” Our goal is to preserve the past to better understand the present while preparing for the future. We ask that you join us and support our work.
