We have been very busy over the winter months. Tom Stone has completed taking inventory of the 1930 Tax Records. The pictures of the houses and buildings back in 1930 are awesome to see!
I (Kathleen) have been busy working on the Cemetery Project, uploading pictures and information to Findagrave.com. The pictures on Findagrave.com are low quality, if you want a high resolution picture of a grave marker, please contact us. We do charge a fee for these pictures.
Started a Page on Facebook for us, type in Bridgton Historical Society or just click like on our website. We have 2 on Facebook a page and a group. The Group will be more for research and the Page will be for events and announcements.
