This Week at MHS: Statehood & More

Today may be the fearsome “ides” of March, but it’s a happy day for Mainers — the 191st anniversary of our state coming into its own. In This Week at MHS, we feature the Maine Memory exhibit “To Separate or Not to Separate,” the story of the long debate that led to finally breaking away from Mother Massachusetts. (Though we do remain loyal members of Red Sox Nation!)

Separatation from Massachusetts county votes, 1816

But that’s not all. We’ve also got a list of upcoming programs for the week on gardens — Yes, it really is spring now! And you can tell because we’ve turned the clocks ahead! — and genealogy. So read on and mark your calendar.
