Indian Lake Museum

Sabael Benedict, a Penobscot Indian from Maine, was the first permanent settler to the area, arriving around 1762. His descendents continue to live in the area. The museum is housed in one of Indian Lake's earliest homes, built following the Civil War in 1865 by Allen Brooks. The collection paints a picture of early times in Indian Lake with arrowheads, farm tools, vintage clothing, photographs of schools and hotels, portraits of early settlers, scrapbooks, medical equipment from town doctors, oddities and memorabilia.

Open: Mid-June-Oct, Tue/Thur, 1-4pm, Fri 7-9pm. Donation.
