|2:00 PM - 4:00 PM|
The Old Homestead at 453 Ash Point Drive in Owls Head will be open from visitors on Wednesdays from 2 to 4pm, July through September. When the Old Homestead was leased by the Mussel Ridge Historical Society from the town of Owls Head in 1963, it had not been lived in since 1938. The buildings, in utter disrepair having been taken by the town for unpaid taxes, were about to be burned for practice drill by volunteer fire department. Members of the newly formed Mussel Ridge Historical Society realized the importance of the early structure and have worked since that time to restore the old home. Please stop by to see our work in progress.
