Journey into History at the Washburn-Norlands Living History Center. We offer a variety of interactive programs to enable our guests to experience life as it truly was in 19th-century Maine. The Norlands is the home of the Washburn family estate. It is a place that bears witness to the humble beginnings of this remarkable Livermore family who became one of America’s great political dynasties. Today, the Norlands is a living museum and working farmstead operating under methods of the 1800s. Our programs are designed for history lovers of all ages.
