The Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum offers several important artifacts in its extensive historical collections that creatively share the region's colorful history.

The Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum offers its visitors exhibits with artifacts highlighting such Rangeley icons as: Fly Rod Crosby, Herb WelchCarrie Stevens and "We Took To The Woods” author Louise Dickinson Rich. Our collection also features numerous 10,000 year old Paleo Native American artifacts, two world-famous Rangeley Boats, an extensive array of antique sporting equipment, a working silk fly line making machine, numerous works of art and a gift shop. These are just a few examples of what awaits visitors at the
Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum.

As we plan for 2016, here is just a snapshot of some of what we are working on over the winter:

We are planning and scheduling a new 2016 edition of our successful Saturday Summer Series which will offer a compelling roster of interesting historical speakers, programs, events, artists and authors.

Our Native American collections are growing and we are pursuing avenues that will allow us to expand upon and better share this important portion of our region’s history. We now have on our OSHM grounds... one of the oldest known man-made stone structures in the new world! We have acquired a Paleo Native American meat cache from the Caribou hunting site on the Upper Magalloway.

We have many recently acquired Rangeley artifacts that we are currently accessioning into our collections and will install into some existing exhibits such as a unique 1903 Carleton sailing canoe with local history and vintage photos.

OSHM will premiere 2 new exhibits. We will share more with you about in the coming months.

In September, we’ll host the 2nd Annual Rangeley Regatta with middle school teams boys and girls from throughout Franklin Co in rowing races in classic Rangeley boats, canoe & kayak races, fly casting & tying, archery, art contest and a road race. We will see if the Rangeley Middle School can successfully defend their title.

2016 promises to be another great year of fun, learning and excitement at OSHM. We'll share more as the schedule develops.
