This is a great place to read up on the logging and tourism industry that has existed on Moosehead Lake for over 200 years,... More

Spend an hour here to get the flavor of the history of the region. It was very enlightening and some of the very old photos were priceless.

Areas of the museum focus on logging, mercantile, schools, resort hotels, transportation, etc. My main interest was transportation, so I found the steamship and railroad displays very satisfying and...

This is a great place to visit while your in Greenville. Learn some of the local history and meet some locals. The locals are also the best to get tips from!

Due to inclement weather, we planned to tour the Moosehead Historical Society Craft House. We were carefully instructed where to go for the start of the tour (sit on the bench). Our guide had lived in the area quite a while and had hilarous stories to tell. Each room represented a different phase of life and it was very well... More

On a recent vacation my Wife and I stopped in Greenville for just a minute and ended up staying for 2 days. Our first stop was at the Museum which was closing in 1 hour. When we expressed our concern about not completing the tour in that time frame, we were assured that we would be seeing everything no matter... More

The staff are very knowledgeable and offer a wealth of information about the history of the Moosehead region and the logging industry. A small museum is on site with hundreds of items related to the history of logging in this region.

Clean, organized, well light and helpful. We were a group of 4 senior citizens. We enjoyed our stop at the Historical Society. What else would you need?
