Mission Statement

Mission Statement

Our mission is to preserve the heritage and traditions of rural life in Maine's past, to celebrate the achievements of Livermore's Washburn family, and to use living history methods to make values, activities, and issues of the past relevant to present and future generations.

Description

Norlands is a 450 acre site with 4 historic buildings: A Universalist Meeting House (built 1828); The family Mansion with attached farmer's cottage and barn (mansion built 1867, farmer's cottage and barn currently being rebuilt after 2008 fire); The family library (built 1883); and a one room school house (rebuilt after 1978 fire).

Norlands hosts living history programs that allow visitors to experience 1870s life from the "inside". These include school programs, overnight "live-ins", bus tour group programs and special events. The site is also used for weddings and conferences.
