About the Trescott Historical Society

We meet the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the Lubec Memorial Library
in the big city of Lubec
The Trescott Historical Society is 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 data 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 Members are actively researching and organizing historical documents, and gradually adding material to the THS website.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.

Membership and Meetings

Society meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month at the Lubec Memorial Library in the adjacent town of Lubec from 5:30 – 8:00 PM. Guest presentations usually begin at 6:30 PM. Lectures and other presentations, as well as normally meetings, are open to the public.

Annual membership dues are $10/individual and $15/couple or family. Donations to the Society are 501(c)3 tax exempt.

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.
