Meeting House

Fall registration available soon

We are excited to be working with our partners at the Abyssinian Meeting House.  The Abyssinian is recognized on the National Registry of Historic Places.  It is the third oldest standing  African American Meeting House in the United States.

The Abyssinian Meeting House is in the final phase of a restoration project that will house various community programs and exhibits.  It will engage multi-cultural communities across Maine.  MHC book groups will meet once at the end of 2019 and three times  during the winter in 2020 at the  historic site.  We are looking forward to nurturing this very important partnership.
