Fryeburg Fair Farm Museum
Located on the site of Maine's largest agricultural fair, the Farm Museum includes artifacts from many crafts and industries of early New England. These include farming; home-making; lumbering; log-driving; quarrying; leather-tanning; potash-making; blacksmithing; wheel-making; shoe-making, harness-making, carpentry, bee-keeping, ice-cutting and maple-syrup production. Equipment from the Bryant Pond Telephone Company, the last magneto hand-crank phone system in the US, is on display, along with other telephone gear. The museum is housed in historic structures including a 19th-century barn and schoolhouse. Each year, the Farm Museum offers daily trade and craft demonstrations.
