Learn about and Join Our Community
It started as stories about people working in downtown Saco shared on our Facebook page: Saco Main Street. Now these stories are some of the most popular posts we have, we the most re-shares, comments, and likes. So, we decided it is time to have a separate page on the website with the plan to build an oral history archive.
Everyone connected with Saco has a story to tell:
whether they lived in Saco for generations or just moved here, own or work for a local business.
We want to share their stories and you can do it too!
Read People of Saco stories and get involved.
Email us for details how you can contribute to the project!
In the process of rebuilding our website,
we discovered we lacked a good visual archive about Saco: it's community events through the years, changes in the buildings and new buildings, new businesses, new parks, and beautification projects.
Share a picture or two or a hundred on the new Facebook page: People, Pictures, Places of Saco.
Pictures can include any visual medium, which represents Saco: paintings, photographs, sculptures, jewelry, quilts, etc.
Learn more about the project while enjoying some of the pictures in our Pictures of Saco Gallery.
Then... share yours on the People, Pictures, Places of Saco Facebook page!
To kick off the summer right, we are putting 25 flags on Main street. The flags will be both national and state flags and will go from the beginning of Saco past the bridge with Biddeford to the intersection of Main and Beach St. Check out our post on Facebook of how they are getting posted.
