Caroline Brown

Caroline was born and raised in Schenectady, New York. She attended Barnard College where she majored in French and Russian with a focus on 19th century Russian literature, leading to fervor for all things 19th century.

Caroline relocated here to Maine after three years of teaching French at a boarding school in Connecticut. In her spare time, she likes to read, write stories, watch TV, cook, practice yoga, dance, and explore Maine’s wilderness and coastline – when it’s warm! She currently lives in downtown Portland with her mischievous black cat, Ada.

Brown joined the staff at the Brick Store Museum in February 2018. She is thrilled to join the staff and to contribute to the Museum’s future!

Favorite spot in the Museum:

Anywhere in view of George Washington Bourne’s portrait.

Everyone should visit the Museum because…

…connecting with the past enables us to discover new worlds and cultures; to expand our worldview.

…in a society that moves rapidly forward, it is vital to reflect on how we got to where we are today. Lessons from history inform how and why we move forward.

…the Museum is a vehicle for community engagement. We come together here to meet and make connections with others.

…we should celebrate the joy of learning!
