What we do

The Brewer Historical Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increase and diffuse knowledge, develop an appreciation of history and maintain an educational museum to preserve Brewer’s history for future generations!

Why We Exist

The Clewley Museum is a turn-of-the-twentieth century in-town farmhouse that features material culture from Brewer’s history including a collection that focuses on Brewer native and Civil war hero General Joshua Chamberlain.

How we do it

Our additional site, Chamberlain Freedom Park is a sculpture park addressing the war hero’s contribution at the Battle of Gettysburg. It includes a full scale bronze of him as well as a topography that re-creates the decisive site of his command at Little Roundtop battlefield.
