Welcome to the Bath Historical Society
BHS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting interest in the history and heritage of Bath, Maine: The City of Ships. Our headquarters are in the Sagadahoc History and Genealogy Room on the second floor of the Patten Free Library at 33 Summer Street in Bath. We provide financial and volunteer support to the History Room, collect photographs, documents and ephemera related to Bath, and present programs about people, places and events in Bath history.
We invite you to join us in exploring our rich heritage on this website, at our programs and in the History Room.
FREE ADMISSION IN JANUARY 2020 to the Maine Maritime Museum!
Thanks to a grant from the Davenport Trust Fund, admission fees will be waived through January 31, giving visitors the opportunity to explore the museum free of charge.
