The purposes of Waterville Historical Society are to collect, catalog, and preserve historical documents, relics, pictures, newspapers, biographical materials and other items concerning the Waterville area, its past and present. We also arrange for the presentation of local history-related talks and exhibitions. We were formed in 1903, first occupying the 1814-built Redington home when it was given to the historical society in 1924. In 1927 and 1971, additions were made behind the Redington home to house an expanding collection and for a meeting space. In 1976 a building was added specifically to house the Apothecary, a local gem of a collection of bygone years. Annual membership fees help keep the museum open and fund preservation efforts.
