I am the new Director of Operations for the Poland Spring Preservation Society! You may recognize me as a familiar face to Poland Spring as I’ve worked for the Poland Spring Resort for 13 years, and involved with the Preservation Society since I was a young child! I am fascinated with the history of Poland Spring, and proud to share my knowledge of the history with anyone who will listen!
The 2021 season will kick off on Saturday May 22nd with an Open House at the Maine State Building and All Souls Chapel from 10-4.

Visit the gift shop with lots of NEW Maine made products from local Maine crafters, Poland Spring and Maine souvenirs, and lots more.
