The Old Homestead at 453 Ash Point Dr. in Owl’s Head will be open to visitors from 2 to 4 pm on Wednesdays, July through September. When the Old Homestead was leased by the Mussel Ridge Historical Society from the town of Owl’s 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 then newly formed Mussel Ridge Historical Society realized the importance of the early structure and have worked since that time to restore the old home.  We hope you will come visit us, see our work in process and learn more about the history of Owl’s Head.
