"Capturing Kittery: 1930s to 1990s"
presented by the Society and Museum
  — at Kittery Community Center
Douglas Armsden

Douglas Armsden was a photographer who lived in Kittery Point until his death in 2009. Much of Armsden's photography highlighted the local surrounding area.

He also documented his years in the service, photographing the Pacific during WWII. His work has been seen in "Down East" and "Profiles" magazines, as well as other venues.

Now, with a donation of his amazing photos in his memory by his family, his story is on display in the Morgan Gallery. Admission is free.

This exhibit — generously underwritten by Kennebunk Savings Bank — will be on display all summer. It's a wonderful way to spend a little time with Kittery history.

For more information, see the Spring 2023 newsletter from the Museum, which was sent to all members of our Society.
