Explore the 19th Century at the
Washburn Norlands Living History Center
Norlands is a 400-acre estate which includes a stately Victorian country mansion with farmer’s cottage, a gothic-style granite library, a Universalist meetinghouse, a one-room schoolhouse, and an expanse of picturesque working farmland.
Who were the remarkable Washburns who built Norlands, led states and people, invented, explored, innovated and always returned home to Maine?
Join us for a
Come to School in 1870
When you bring your class, camp, scout troop or youth group to the Washburn Norlands Living History Center, volunteer and staff interpreters lead your students in an educational and historical experience as if it were the 19th century. Our educational school-age program is designed for history lovers of all ages. Each session is within the capacity of today’s learners and they gain an understanding of what life was like in this crossroads neighborhood of Livermore, Maine. Small groups participate in a variety of activities throughout the buildings on the Washburn Norlands campus.
Our videos were filmed during a family visit by Dustin Tribou – Saylorink Tatoo. Thank you!
