Somesville Museum Campus

At the Mount Desert Historical Society, we have two museum campuses and three buildings with exhibits. Our Somesville Museum campus has the historic Selectmen’s Building, Thaddeus Somes Bridge, Someville Museum, Heirloom Garden, and the Lousia Conrad Garden. Our campus at the Sound Schoolhouse features the 1892 Sound Schoolhouse, Ralph Stanley Research Library, and the Mount Desert Island Historical Society offices.

Throughout the year, our Sound Schoolhouse located at 373 Sound Drive in Mount Desert has a permanent exhibit and is open Monday through Friday, 10 am to 4 pm.

During the summer months through September, we present changing exhibits in the Selectmen’s Building and the Somesville Museum. These exhibits are open Sunday through Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm.

Children and adults can all enjoy these museum visits. There are activities for children in both the Sound Schoolhouse and the Somesville Museum.”
