Cultural history in the sense used on this website is what is commonly called just “history”. Here the adjective “cultural” is used to distinguish the history of humans from “natural history” (see above), the study of non-human organisms.
Note from the manager of this website: I have received many questions and kind comments about the information I have compiled about Maine’s cultural history. Some of the pages have been accepted by nonprofit organizations for their future curation, but much of the material is still incomplete, and I do not have the time to add to it in a meaningful way. Therefore, I am removing the links to those pages that used to appear below this paragraph, I will leave the pages themselves online until, over the next few months, I remove them from the web.
My intent had been to discontinue the website entirely, but I am working on a project that I want to “complete” (assuming I live long enough), so I have renewed the webhosting package for another year.
