About the Artist

The Brick Store Museum opened in 1936. It was founded by American artist and Kennebunk resident Edith Barry in an 1825 general store built of brick, which sits at the top of Main Street in the heart of Kennebunk. Over its eighty years in existence, the Museum and its staff and trustees have collected over 70,000 objects and archival items that illustrate this area’s rich history, art and culture.

Over the years, the Museum has expanded from the single brick building to encompass five 19th Century buildings, housing collections storage rooms, seven galleries, and an educational program center.

The Brick Store Museum is a place for many things. Here, you will find educational opportunities beyond the classroom; discover a place to create a better future by learning from the past; share memories so that they are never forgotten; and find a space in which to congregate and grow as a local and global citizen.
