Woodlawn Museum

Woodlawn is a 180-acre property that includes the Black House, a historic house museum built in 1827 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Located a quarter mile from downtown Ellsworth, Maine, it is managed by the Hancock County Trustees for Public Reservations. The house museum is open seasonally while the trails through the forested landscape are open daily, dawn to dusk. A multi-purpose barn facility is under construction that will be available for rent and for community education programs later in 2023. Woodlawn nurtures curiosity and a sense of place by promoting Downeast Maine’s cultural heritage and offering diverse educational and recreational experiences.
