Jesse Drew Historical Collection

"Uncle  Jesse with his yellow vest and brass buttons" -

Centennial Pageant of

Fort Fairfield, Maine - 1916

In 1925 the Fort Fairfield Public Library was gifted a large collection of Civil War and Maine historical books by Col. Franklin M. Drew in memory of his father Jesse Drew. This collection has been continuously added to over the years to give us the fantastic collection we now have. Many of our items are not available anywhere else in Maine or the northeast. The collection includes specific Fort Fairfield family history, vital records, genealogies and cemetery records, as well as vital records from around the state.
Come visit us to research from this collection.
