Belgrade Town House Could See Some Work

As reported by Mechele Cooper of the Kennebec Journal:

BELGRADE -- A group in town wants residents to consider restoring the 1815 Town House.

Nancy Mairs, town historian and member of the Belgrade Historical Society, said people would first have to weigh in on the decision.

The building could have many uses, including as a place for the historical society to meet and store its collection of artifacts.

They were sent to me years ago but lost in my paper clutter (for more information about getting rid of your genealogy paper clutter, join me on   So yesterday I was able to upload 50 new names to the database along with photos of their head stones.  I'm only about 1/3 of the way through the first CD, so there should be a lot more coming in the next few days.

With these additions, though, I am happy to announce the Gravestone Photo Project now has 4,200 records from all across Maine.  Check it out today:
