The conditions of the will called for the plot to remain undeveloped and to allow public access for the residents of the town of Gorham.

Mission Statement:
The purpose of the Society is to bring together those people interested in the history of the Town of Gorham and State of Maine and to collect and preserve ephemera and artifacts of the history of the town and its citizens so that people now and in the future will have resources to study their heritage.
