Friends of the Blaine House

The Friends of the Blaine House exists to help Maine State Government maintain the character, physical integrity, and historical significance of the official residence of the Governor of the State of Maine, familiarly called “The People’s House.” Along with protecting and maintaining the grounds, gardens, and interior appointments of the House, The Friends works and raises monies to promote and preserve the House’s enduring connection to Maine’s history and to the State’s many peoples. The Friends supports promotion of knowledge about the House and its occupants, public access to the House; recognizing that familiarity with the past enhances the eternal values of place, purpose, and community.
