Description

Maine 175 - A Celebration of 175 Years of Maine Statehood.

September 5, 1995 - January 28, 1996

This exhibition is designed to celebrate the 175th anniversary of Maine statehood using maps and other artifacts.

Maps and their creators have played an important role in the history of Maine from the time of the first visits by European mariners to the present. Explorers and mapmakers struggled first to take the measure of the land and then used maps to take possession of it. French and English officials put forward conflicting claims to Maine in the form of maps, as did the Americans and English in their boundary disputes.
