Organized and incorporated in 1970, the Buxton-Hollis Historical
Society is a non-profit organization with partial support from the towns of
Buxton and Hollis. The society’s purpose is to collect, preserve and publish whatever may be related to the
early and late history of the towns of Buxton and Hollis, including but not
limited to books, relics and articles about early settlers, records of colonial
and later wars, as well as genealogical information and maps.
Our Society's museum, library and archival collections include a wide range of materials documenting
the rich heritage of this area of southern Maine and the Saco River Valley. The N. C. Watson School Museum at Buxton Center offers third grade classes and
other visitors the opportunity to experience life in a one room school at the
beginning of the twentieth century. Throughout the year, the Buxton-Hollis Historical
Society provides lectures, cemetery and house tours, special exhibits, books
and items of historic interest and educational activities for people of all
We invite your support by becoming a member of the Society!
