Mission:
We are a non-partisan, non-profit, non-sectarian organization with the purpose of discovering and collecting any material or objects that may help to verify and preserve the history of the town of Monson, Maine.

Included in the collections are items from the Monson Narrow Gauge Railroad, military memorabilia from the Revolutionary War to the current action in Iraq, Monson Fair, Juanita Grange, a display of slate mining, the Spruce Gum business, Monson Academy trophies, Monson Band instruments and much, much more. We invite you to browse through the wonderful collection of photos, documents and scrap books. A friendly atmosphere, great volunteers and a beautiful view up Lake Hebron!
