"Best Sporting Museum in New England" 

May /June 2014.



Rangeley’s rich outdoor sporting history, traditions and personalities come alive in this highly anticipated new museum located in Rangeley's charming village of Oquossoc, the heart of Maine’s fishing and hunting since the mid 1800’s.  The museum operated by the Rangeley Historical Society opened on August 14, 2010.

The rustic museum, modeled after a 1900’S taxidermy shop, provides for the confluence of our history, our present and importantly, our future. The voices of Carrie Stevens, Herb Welch, Fly Rod Crosby and Ed Grant  and Shang Wheeler call to today’s sportsmen and visitors …. to reawaken the sense of adventure and excitement of a ten-pound wild brook trout, the beauty of a Carrie Steven’s Gray Ghost Streamer or the lifelike Herb Welch mounted brook trout
