Welcome to the Hancock County coastal community of Surry. As the postcard says, you're in for a good time.

Surry middle level students and teachers, in partnership with the Surry Historical Society and other community members, have spent much of the 2011-2012 school year researching our town's history. Using primary documents and the latest technologies, students have digitized over 100 historic photographs and artifacts, transcribed several antiquated documents, and learned how to carefully handle and photograph historical objects. They've also interviewed several long-time Surry residents.

The first five exhibits for this project, completed during the 2011-2012 school year, reflect the spirited history of our community.

We thank the Maine Community Heritage Project and the Maine Historical Society for this opportunity and look forward to continuing this partnership in the future.

We welcome your input. Please contact us with any information, photographs, artifacts, or items you have that relate to Surry’s past, so that you can help us continue to explore and share our little town's history.
