Welcome to the Davistown Museum Photo Tour. This Photo Tour is the next best alternative to an actual visit to our physical facilities in Liberty, Hulls Cove, and Searsport, Maine. Our Photo Tour begins with our Main Exhibition Hall at our Liberty building. The overview of the Main Exhibition Hall is followed by an exterior view of the Museum and the back porch of the staff and visitors’ kitchen. The Photo Tour includes an extensive series of photographs of our exhibitions, collections, and recent acquisitions. In addition to the Main Exhibition Hall on the 3rd floor, the Photo Tour includes the print department (and children’s room), the adjoining local history room, and a tour of the 2nd floor complex of nine rooms of the Maine Artists Guild Galleries, which also include many items in the permanent collection. Please note our extensive series of libraries on three floors, recently renamed the Eliott Sayward Memorial Library due to the donation of his books to our Center for the Study of Early Tools. Also note the pre-2005 photos, which show the Main Exhibition Hall before Alan McGee’s triptych became part of the permanent collection. Don’t forget to take a photo tour of the Davistown Museum Hulls Cove Sculpture Gardens, the new Visitors Center in Searsport, and the potpourri of other photographs that we have accumulated pertaining to Board meetings, pot lucks, and Open House events. After taking the Museum Photo Tour, you may also wish to take a photo tour of the 3 museum sponsors – Liberty Tool Co., Hulls Cove Tool Farm (Barn), and Captain Tinkham’s Emporium in Searsport.
