Watching over the heritage and guiding the future of the Dennys River area, the Academy/Vestry Museum and Soldiers Memorial stand guard in the heart of Dennysville, Maine.
On this guided mobile tour, join these veterans of time as they witness to the past and call us to think about the consequences of our actions.
Preserved like a fly in the amber, this pretty village in Eastern Maine speaks to a way of life from its American settlement in 1786 through the mid-nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Running from Meddybemps Lake, the Dennys River has been a highway for the Passamaquoddy Indians for over seven thousand years. It has powered dams and lumber mills, supported shipyards, and provided a source for Tagwhanan, the Atlantic salmon that have delighted sportsmen and lovers of good eating everywhere.
Today it unites the neighboring communities of Edmunds, Marion, and Cathance Townships.
We invite you to explore this community and discover how our past is the present rolled up for action, and our present is the past unrolled for understanding.
