To the Editor:

During the entire month of July, the Museums of the Bethel Historical Society (MBHS) will be featuring an Auction/Raffle Fundraiser. People can stop in MBHS and view the wonderful variety of items donated by local merchants, members, and friends. Some will be featured on a Raffle Board outside the Robinson House, others will be available for individual bidding either in person or on the phone. More information will be forthcoming; but please consider stopping in and making a bid or choosing a Raffle envelope. Also, Saturday, July 31 from 4-6 is our “Fund-Raising Finale” on the grounds of the Museum. If you are unable to stop in, information is also on our website: or give us a call at 207-824-2908.

Additionally, in July we will offer “Behind the Scenes” Tours during regular MBHS hours. Please call to schedule your time for this extraordinary opportunity to see our state-of-the-art storage, vault, clothing and fabric collections, Western Maine artifacts and antiquities, and tour of the Archives and Library. Let us know what you would like to see and we will do our best!

The Museum is open to the public Wednesday- Friday 10 a.m.-3 p.m. plus Saturday 10 a.m.-1 p.m., and events are free. Contact us for a truly wonderful Western Maine historical experience.
