The Maysville Grange building, located about one mile north of Presque Isle on the right is being considered for acquisition by the Presque Isle Historical Society.
This location has significant historical value for the area. It served as a town hall for Maysville, a school, and later as a Grange for Maysville.
This building has the potential to tell the history of the Grange movement in Maine, to list the one-room school houses that were in the area, to tell the story of the Aroostook War, and the story of Maysville.
Ken Hayden is already at work to have the property declared a national memorial or historic battlefield for the Aroostook War, which took place in 1838-1839.
The large tree that has been ecroaching on the porch has been removed.
Several grants have been written to obtain funds for renovations in order to make this a museum on the Aroostook War, the Faces of Maysville, and more.
A wish list for items needed is available. For more information drop us an e-mail
