Rangeley Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum
Rangeley Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum Review
Spruce railings and siding on the Rangeley Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum's facade replicate a local taxidermy shop from about 1900. Inside, the welcome center is a reassembled log sporting camp cabin from the same period, when grand hotels and full-service sporting camps drew well-to-do rusticators on long stays. Visitors like to linger here before viewing displays on the Rangeley area's rich history as a fishing, hunting, and outdoor mecca, from the Native Americana period through the rusticator era to today. One of the big lures is the exhibit on local fly-tier Carrie Stevens, whose famed streamer flies (the world's largest collection is here) increased the region's fly-fishing fame in the 1920s.
