The New Home of the

Cape Elizabeth Historical Preservation Society:

We've completed the move!

After much planning and work, the move from the Cape Elizabeth Police Department to Fort Williams was completed on October 6, 2022. Our deepest thanks to all the members and volunteers who helped! Now the work of unpacking and settling in is underway. We look forward to announcing our open hours on Thursday mornings again soon - stay tuned!

We are also busy creating two new endeavors. A Cape Elizabeth Town Museum and a Fort Williams Museum. Both will feature dioramas created by Bob Dodd. We are excited to be able to display many of our fascinating holdings and to share more information about our town.

Please join us to preserve and promote interest in Cape's fascinating past. Members' benefits include lectures, outings, and the Society's newsletter "The Keeper" which highlights treasures from our archives. The annual membership fee is only $25.00, and is due the first of September. Click here for a membership form.
