Gouldsboro Historical Society
The Town of Gouldsboro Historical Society is devoted to researching, collecting, and preserving the Town’s historical material, and educating citizens about the history of our Town and region. The Society serves the community by operating the Old Town House Museum the Blance Archive, and this website; by cooperating with schools, libraries, and local organizations; and by offerring numerous events to inform and entertain the public.
The Society was begun in 1982 by Lyda Noyes and Mary Lou Weaver as the West Gouldsboro Historical Society. They quickly discovered there was much interest throughout the whole town in preserving the history of the area. Thus, in 1983, the name of the Society was changed to the Town of Gouldsboro Historical Society and collections of papers and artifacts concerning the early history of the town were donated to the group.
