Centennial Endowment Fund
The Centennial Endowment Fund was created in 2019 on the 100th anniversary of Harriet Blaine Beale’s gift of the Blaine House to the State of Maine. Built in 1833, this historic building and its grounds require diligent upkeep. The goal of the Fund is to ensure that resources will always be available to maintain this treasured piece of Maine history. Large scale projects, the acquisition of historical documents and items related to the Blaine House, and important restorations are the focus of the Fund’s assets, ensuring that the building and grounds are protected no matter the current economic conditions.
The Blaine House has been the home of Maine’s Governors for over 100 years. Help us to preserve this historic home for the next 100 years and longer.
