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, especially Seacoast New Hampshire and Southern York County, Maine.

Counting House Museum  The Counting House Museum 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 the Berwicks, site of the first permanent settlement in Maine.
