MEETING HOUSE MUSEUM
This Greek Revival structure was built in 1834, and is listed on the National Register of His- toric Places. Formerly used as the Meeting House for the Universalist Church of Orleans, this building houses the Society’s Museum and is used for special exhibits and cultural programs.
The Society has a large display of artwork and woodcarvings by local artists, Native American artifacts, early chinaware, model ships and more. Another major exhibit focuses on area shipwrecks and life-saving history.
The Museum also has an extensive archive (some of it electronic) of 19th and 20th centu- ry photos, maps, genealogical information, diaries, deeds, ship’s logs, special collections focusing on Orleans families and individuals, and other items.
Visitors are welcome. Admission is free (donations greatly appreciated).
