Dedicated to perserving Finnish Heritage
The Finnish American Heritiage Society is dedicated to perserving our Finnish Heritage. Our meeting hall located in West Paris, Maine, is not only our meeting venue once a month, but also home to our museum, library and gift shop.
Educating and Sharing
The mission of the Finnish American Society of Maine is to educate and inform those interested in our Finnish culture, our history and our future. The picture to the right is a statue located in Hanko in honor of those Finns who have immigrated to other parts of the world
Socializing in the Community
The Finn-Am provides a wonderful opportunity to interact with the community. Our open houses and public suppers are an exciting way to not only meet and greet old friends, but also create new ones.
Honoring our past, present and future
As a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving our heritage, the Finnish American Heritage Society takes great pride in where we come from and hope to pass that appreciation on to future generations.
The Finnish-American Heritage Society is organized for the purpose of promoting, in a social setting, a cultural and educational appreciation of Finland and to explore the traditions of the Finnish families who settled here. Membership is open to all persons interested in the work to which this organization is dedicated. Annual dues are $10 per person and are due by the first regular meeting of the calendar year.
