The Raymond-Casco Historical Society (RCHS) was formed in 1971.  The society’s main focus is the history of Raymond, established in 1803, and Casco—which separated from the town of Raymond in 1841.

During its first year of existence, the RCHS became the recipient of an historic schoolhouse.  It was donated by siblings Hacker Hall & Leona Hall Edwards.  The 1849 Friends Schoolhouse (a.k.a. the Quaker Ridge Schoolhouse) was moved from Quaker Ridge to Casco Village on November 22, 1971.

An official charter was granted to the society in 1973.  Members whose names appeared on the charter document were Lawrence A. Taylor, Leona H. Edwards, Doris F. Moore, Mildredge M. Whiteley, Hope E. Hatch, Ernest H. Knight and Louise E. Knight.

In 1996, the Friends’ Schoolhouse was entered on the National Register of Historic Places.  The RCHS also published a book in 1996, titled Historical Gems of Raymond and Casco.  It was written by Ernest Knight and is a compilation of newsletter articles from 1971-1991.
