About Us

Preserving the history of the paper industry in Maine.

In 2002, a group of people dedicated to preserving the history of the paper industry in Maine came together to establish Maine’s Paper & Heritage Museum, with the common goal of capturing the cultural heritage of the paper-making towns and mills along the Androscoggin River. Its mission is to create an exciting interactive museum where visitors can experience life in a paper-making community, as well as to encourage tourism, increase economic activity and showcase the area’s distinctive heritage.
