Moosehead Historical Society & Museums Review

Guides in period costume lead tours of the Eveleth-Crafts-Sheridan House, a late-19th-century Victorian mansion filled with period antiques, most original to the home. The Lumberman's Museum, about the region's logging history, is in the carriage house, while the barn next door houses a re-creation of a one-room schoolhouse and a general-store exhibit. You can savor lunch and the architecture of these meticulously maintained buildings from the art-accented Sunken Garden. A mile away in downtown Greenville, the former Universalist Church houses the Center for Moosehead History and Moosehead Lake Aviation Museum. The former has a fine exhibit of Native American artifacts from the Moosehead Lake region, dating from 9,000 BC to the 1700s, while the latter highlights the impact of aviation on the area, from early bush pilots to Greenville's annual International Seaplane Fly-in.
