The building pictured above is an 1810 house with eight rooms: kitchen, parlor, map room, marine room, pantry and three upstairs bedrooms. We also have a boatshop and an addition to the original building which houses three exhibit rooms and a reference room with various archival and genealogical materials.  

The purpose of the Museum is to preserve items relating to life on Southport Island in the period from 1800 to 1950, such as

 

 Seagoing tools of the schooner and fishing trades

 Ice harvesting tools

 Several wooden boats

 Navigational instruments and charts

 Carpenters’ tools

 Kitchen and household items

China both dressy and everyday

 Furniture and clothing

Built by John Cameron circa 1810, the central building remained in the Cameron family for 100 years. They were a family of fishermen. One year their vessels flew the “high line”, signifying that they had taken more fish than any other Southport family.

   

There is no admission fee, but donations are gratefully accepted either at the Museum or through P.O. Box 3, Southport, ME 04576
