Chronicling Commerce


October 21, 2008 – May 29, 2009

The Museum is the steward of hundreds of photographs, documents, and artifacts that record our area’s business heritage from the earliest days to the present. Commercial ephemera spanning the past 200 years was the subject of this History Showcase. Business cards, advertising pieces, brochures, products and packaging spoke to the diversity of industries that have called the Kennebunks their headquarters.

This installment of The History Showcase was made possible by the Museum’s 2008-2009 proud business partners: Jeffrey A. Bonney, CFP®, Captain Lord Mansion, Ocean Bank, and Captain Jefferds Inn
