“Excellent events throughout the summer. Tour the old sea captains houses and displays of how they lived. The museum has a gallery too with planned events. Learn about Searsport's maritime history. Very interesting. Searsport was a major hub for the Tall Sailing ships before the steam engine with cargos from the orient. The downtown architecture still supports the old sea captain mansions.”

“Only minutes away is this amazing Shire-town with all original buildings, and so many stories. There was only one hanging at the goal (jail) and that was very controversial. Hear about the original families, look at, hear about, and touch artifacts and antique tools. A gem of a place!”

“Jonathon Fisher was indeed a Renaissance man who wore many hats. We particularly marvel that he used to WALK to Bangor (and back) to give sermons. Museum is in his original house. Call for hours.”
