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 confluence of our history, our present and importantly, our
future. The voices of Carrie Stevens,
Fly Rod Crosby and Ed Grant and
Shang Wheeler call to

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
