The Curran Homestead Living History Farm and Museum is a Community Education Project and a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation located in Orrington, Maine. It includes a 19th-century farmstead with vegetable gardens, a functioning blacksmith shop, a growing collection of domestic and agricultural material culture, seasonal events, an oral history archive, and over 30 acres of fields and woodlands to explore. We are situated opposite a large fresh-water pond with accessibility to additional wooded trails. We offer the experience of early-20th-century life on a family farm in rural eastern Maine.
Our next event:
Saturday, February 7, 2015, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.:
Harvest of Diamonds: Our Seventh Annual Field’s Pond Ice Harvest
Come out onto the frozen surface of Field’s Pond and see how large cakes of ice, once Maine’s second-largest export, were harvested to keep the world’s food supply fresh and cool..
