Mission Statement:

The Sweden Historical Society collects, preserves, and disseminates historically significant materials related to Sweden, Maine to share with current and future generations. 

The Society, organized in 1978, has been registered in the State of Maine as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is included in the Maine State Archives list of local historical societies. The Society is a member of the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) and the Maine Association of Museums (MAM).

One of the critical needs of the Society is the restoration of  Sweden's Center Schoolhouse in order to provide a home for the Society and meet its mission to provide the town with access to historically significant materials.
