Pittsfield Historical Society

Welcome to Pittsfield Historical Society

The Pittsfield Historical Society was formed in 1983 in a community effort to preserve and protect some of the town's most valuable assets: its history and artifacts. Pittsfield's past is rich in the history of a mill town, beginning in its earliest days as a wilderness hunting expedition site, to the first mills erected on the Sebasticook River that winds its way through the downtown area.

Though a small organization, the Pittsfield Historical Society is a resource locally on site at the historic train depot, as well as online to the wider community, and is a source for educational and genealogical research.
