Busy season for Bangor Historical Society

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - It's the busy season for the folks in the Bangor history business.

The Bangor Historical Society is all about bringing people together in the present with an eye on the past.

They are running various walking tours 6 days a week, and recently kicked off their monthly membership nights.

On the 4th Thursday of every month members join at Hill House to enjoy wine and snacks.

Joining is very easy and can be done in person on the day of the event...

"We get people from all over," said Executive Director Melissa Gerety. "You've got Bangor residents who show up, we get people from across the region and you also have quite a few tourists come that look us up on the website and a lot of them buy their tickets in advance. There is so much to learn about this city. I've been here 13 years and it's my job to know its history and I still learn stuff every day."

You can find the historical society on Facebook, or visit them at bangorhistoricalsociety.org.
