The GCIHS Preble-Marr Museum includes an archive of more than 4,000 items chronicling the life and times of those living on Maine's Cranberry Isles (especially Great Cranberry Island) from the early 1800s to the present. The archive contains photographs, audio recordings, cemetery preservation projects, tools, nautical charts, digital media, documents, metal, glass, wood, ceramic, leather, and cloth artifacts. 

The Digital Archive is a work-in-progress: powered by Omeka; designed by George Soules (AvantLogic), hosted by DowneastIT; and funded by the Maine Arts Commission and GCIHS. We’re busy forging links and relationships between artifacts, so send your comments to: info@gcihs.org/207.244.7800.
