Old Berwick Historical Society

Welcome to Old Berwick Historical Society

The Old Berwick Historical Society promotes public awareness of and appreciation for local and regional history through a variety of activities that explore, preserve, interpret, and celebrate the past, and through stewardship of the Counting House and its collections.

We serve history lovers from all over the country, but especially the Berwicks and southern York County, Maine and Seacoast New Hampshire.

The Counting House Museum, a cotton textile mill building overlooking the Salmon Falls River in South Berwick, is a regional treasure containing one of northern New England’s last textile mill ballrooms. Home of the Old Berwick Historical Society, it is a repository for documents, photographs and historic curiosities covering a wide spectrum of community life in and around South Berwick, site of the first permanent settlement in Maine.
