Our weekly column from the museum curator, Trudy Wyman is a favorite of Millinocket history fans far and wide! The column is published in the Lincoln News, on our Facebook page, and here on our website.


It's a great mix of stories from our past, interesting items on display in the museum, and memories of the people and businesses that once graced our hometown's streets.  


Remember the past.
