About Us

The Nobleboro Historical Society has been in existence since March 1978.
OUR FOUNDER

Dr. George F. Dow
July 22, 1905 - June 9, 2006

On June 9, 2006 we lost our dear friend and Town Historian George Dow. Though George is no longer with us, the information he assembled to document the history of Nobleboro will live on forever. If you would like to read more about the long and productive life of George, click here.
