Dry Mills Schoolhouse Museum

Preservation of our Past and Pathway to our Future

Meeting Dates, Agendas, Minutes

Establishment
There shall be a Dry Mills Schoolhouse Museum Committee consisting of five (5) members, appointed by the Town Council for three (3) year staggered terms.

Mission Statement
The mission of the Dry Mills Schoolhouse Museum located adjacent to the Maine Wildlife Park's campus in Gray, Maine, is to offer a venue for locals and visitors to take a step back in history for an experiential visit in a mid-1800's schoolroom. The restored, one-room schoolhouse displays old photographs, hands-on items, and period books, including a copy of one of the century's teacher journals. We strive to fully restore and secure the Dry Mills Schoolhouse for posterity, to preserve its rich history, to open and present it to the public on a regular basis, to allow Gray residents, individual visitors, and student groups direct access to an educational immersion experience, and to provide a preserve for intermutual community and celebratory events.

The school occupies a site off the State Game Farm Road that is approximately 1.5 miles away from its original location along Route 26.

If you are interested in supporting the Dry Mills Schoolhouse Museum either as a Volunteer, or as a Friend of the School, we would like to hear from you. It is an excellent way to help preserve local history while performing a service to the community. Students are welcome.
