Cornish Historical Society at 40 Main Street (next to the Library) - Open Saturdays from 1-4pm starting in July, and by appointment. Research room is available during open times also.

The purpose of the Cornish Historical Society is to collect and preserve the history of the town of Cornish, Maine. We were incorporated in 1993, just prior to the town's Bicentennial. One of our first projects was to edit and re-publish the town history book - accomplished in time for the Bicentennial Celebration held in 1994. See a member to purchase a copy.
