Think you know the history of downtown Bangor? You may know some of it but why not test your knowledge, learn a bit more, and get a front-row spot for a tour of the Best of Bangor. 

AARP Maine is proud to sponsor several local historical walks around Greater Bangor led by the fantastic Bangor Historical Society: local wisdom supported by local dollars and local volunteers. 

This walk: Bangor is a city rich in history, mystery and powerful events. Perched on the edge of the Maine North Woods and a one-time important harbor, Bangor’s history is filled with tales of lumber barons who struck it rich from her natural resources as well as shipping magnates and manufacturing pioneers.


The Best of Bangor tells the stories of our first settlers, the greatest disaster in U.S. Naval History (until Pearl Harbor),  the British Occupation during the War of 1812, the Great Fire of 1911 and so much more.

Reserve your space today as space is limited!
