The Fifth Maine Regiment Memorial Hall was built in 1888 as the "Headquarters" of the Fifth Regiment Maine Volunteer Infantry 1861-1864. For nearly sixty years the veterans and their families summered here, enjoying the cooling ocean breezes and magnificent view from the verandah of their beloved cottage. Under the stewardship of an elected board of directors, the Hall is maintained as a Civil War and local history museum and a cultural center for our island community.
The museum will reopen for the season on May 24, 2019. We'll be open from 11am to 4pm on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and holidays thru June 30. Beginning July 1 we'll be open 7 days a week from 11am to 4pm thru Labor Day.
