For over 50 years, Old Berwick Historical Society members have collected historic maps, papers, photos and objects reflecting the heritage of the Piscataqua region, with a concentration on the Salmon Falls River area near South Berwick, Maine. Today the Counting House Museum is a repository for over 13,500 items covering a wide spectrum of community life. (In addition to the main collection, the museum also houses over 30,000 artifacts from the Chadbourne Archaeology Project.)

You can explore the main collection listing by downloading our searchable spreadsheet and making searches.  The size is 115 MB.

Volunteers maintain the collection as a research center, and can help you refine your search and make the archives available for study. Photocopies can be made at 25 cents per page, with photos scanned for $10 for non-publication use (higher rates for published images). 

Because of limited volunteer coverage, an appointment is strongly recommended. Please write This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .


If our volunteers assist you, please support the Old Berwick Historical Society with a $20 donation.  A membership donation helps us to maintain our museum, archives and services. DONATE/BECOME A MEMBER
