Capturing Maine: Photographs from the Collection of Historic New England opens at the Sarah Orne Jewett Museum and Visitor Center on September 4, 2015.

Capturing Maine uses photographs from Historic New England’s collection to take the viewer on a wonderful tour documenting the stories of Maine from the mid-nineteenth through the twentieth century. The photographs in the exhibition capture moments that illuminate spectacular Maine scenery, life on the coast, industrial and agricultural history, summer tourists at play, residents at work, and a variety of other activities.

Explore Maine’s stories and enjoy work by such photographers as Emma L. Coleman, Baldwin Coolidge, Alfred Wayland Cutting, Edwin Martin, Henry G. Peabody, Fred Quimby, Verner Reed, and Elise Tyson.
