SKOWHEGAN — Lee Granville, longtime curator of the Skowhegan History House, will retire at the end of the season.

Granville is well known for his superb memory and understanding of historic events. Many Skowhegan residents routinely look to him for historical information and consider him to be the town historian. In fact, he routinely assists historians and researchers around the world via email.

While serving as curator, Granville began the process of professionally cataloging the collection, implemented the use of technology for cataloging and bringing history alive, and worked tirelessly to preserve and conserve the collection.

He was also instrumental in establishing a program that connected middle school students and staff with the Maine Memory Network, a program which drew national attention.

Although Granville is retiring, he will volunteer as an associate curator when his busy schedule allows.
