Dear Kennebunkport Community,
You’ve been wonderful to support the Kennebunkport Historical Society through this
exceptionally challenging time. Thank you so much for your partnership.
We are writing to you today, as we approach the end of the year, to ask for your
renewed financial support for our Society’s important work. Your gift will make a
critical impact in support of our mission, which is to protect, preserve, and share
Kennebunkport’s history. We take this charge very seriously.
This year has been a time of change for the Society. We welcomed an energetic
new director, Kristin Haight. Our Board of Directors grew to include 3 new
members. Sarah Reagan Auer, a 4th generation Kennebunkport native, was
appointed Board President. Long-time stewards Dana Dakers and John Zimmerman
retired from Board service. Kirsten Camp, our wonderful executive administrator,
also retired after many years’ service.
After a long and financially challenging pandemic year, the Society reopened the
Nott House and resumed tours. We also were able to reopen the doors at the
Townhouse School and have used this beautiful new space to offer live music
events and lectures, and to conduct our Oral History project interviews.
Looking forward to 2022, education is at the forefront of our planning efforts. We
are structuring new ways to educate community members of all ages through
traditional lectures, hands-on learning, as well as digital platforms. We also
remain devoted to caring for, and expanding access to, our priceless collections at
the Pasco Center and the Nott House (aka White Columns).
Your gift is critical to our success.
Thank you, in advance, for sending a check or making a gift online at
