Saco Museum is one of Maine’s oldest museums, located on Main Street, Saco. The museum has played a significant role in the cultural history of Southern Maine since 1866. The Museum houses an exceptional collection from the Federal period (1780-1820), as well as paintings and decorative arts associated with local history from the 17th century through the 20th century.
Biddeford’s McArthur Library also has many historical files and is the host of the Historical Society. Researching history (either your own family history or the history of a place, time or people) can be a lot of work and a lot of fun, too! Our library is home to many resources for history and genealogy researchers interested in the Biddeford-Saco area.
