Historic Properties CoordinatorKurt Lewis

My primary role as Historic Properties Coordinator is the historic preservation of CCHS’ three main properties.

In addition to this, I coordinate all CCHS rentals and organize the Society’s annual McLain Celtic Festival held each year at the Two Mile House. I’ve been working at the Historical Society for since 2014. My favorite thing about Cumberland County is the large number of surviving historic buildings in the towns and countryside. The best and quickest way to reach me is via email at My favorite historical figure is Teddy Roosevelt because of his creation of the National Parks and signing of the Antiquities Act.
