Welcome to the Trescott Historical Society
We are a private membership organization open to the public and dedicated to the study and publication of the history of Trescott, Maine. We have elected officers, and general policy is set by a Board of Directors.

We have over 435 family surname files covering the years 1785 to 1920, including historical maps and surveys. Additional files cover the years from 1920 to 1945 (when the town deorganized) and later, 1946 to the present, when all vital records have been recorded in the bordering town of Lubec.

Since most of the early settlers and later inhabitants moved from the area for economic reasons, we are interested in receiving and sharing information with descendants of former Trescott, Maine residents.

The Society sponsors a variety of activities including public lectures, genealogy exchanges and outings. Members are actively researching and organizing historical documents, and gradually adding material to the THS website. A recent project has been re-issuing the 1881 Atlas of Washington County.

Rare Glass Negatives of the Lubec area in 1911

We are happy to make available for all to enjoy a very rare find — 65 photographs taken in Lubec and nearby areas in 1911! The photographer is unknown, but the surroundings will seem familiar. We would love feedback about any of these intriguing glimpses into our past. If you recognize anything or anyone, please let us know so we can share the information!

On Our Website
The Trescott Historical Society is a private membership organization and is open to the public. We are dedicated to the study and publication of the history of the Township of Trescott, Maine. The now-unincorporated town of Trescott is nestled between the towns of Whiting & Cutler to the west, and Lubec to the east. To the north are the shores of Whiting Bay and Straight Bay, and to the south is Grand Manan Channel in the mouth of the Bay of Fundy.

Formerly known as Plantation No. 9, it was incorporated in 1827, named after Major Lemuel Trescott (1751-1826), a patriot from the American Revolution, who had moved to the area in 1784, and had become a prominent citizen. During those early days, the town of Trescott was busy with lumbering, farming and fishing.
