Welcome to the Maine State Archives

This month the Maine State Archives is remembering Armistice Day, November 11th, 1918, which marked the end of World War I.  The next year, Governor Carl Milliken signed a proclamation to remember Armistice Day.  This year, the Archives featured an exhibit on World War I to commemorate the centennial of the war.  This exhibit will be open through November and will be open on Sunday, November 11th for the Armistice Day event at the Cultural Building.
