Themed Slideshows

The archival collections included in Maine Historical Society’s Beyond Borders project have many stories and historic themes to highlight. The manuscripts, maps, and other materials held within these collections, originally created as a record of the business activities of merchant owned land speculation companies, form a rich bedrock of source material for potential historic exploration.

MHS has compiled several themed slideshows from the over 30,000 pages of records contained within the Pejepscot Proprietors, Kennebec Proprietors, and Barclay collections. Our hope is that this will serve as a source of information and inspiration to further explore these vast archival treasures. This page will continue to be updated with new compilations.
