The Page Farm & Home Museum is located in the last original agricultural building on the University of Maine campus. The museum houses an ever-growing collection of farm implements and household items. The collection is presently arranged on the three floors of this original post-and-beam construction barn. The household items are divided among three home exhibits: Brownie's Kitchen, dedicated to Mildred Brown Schrumpf; a Parlor; and a Bedroom, all within the barn. The rest of the museum reflects the many varied aspects of farming and farm life. Equipment and vehicles having to do with everything from clearing land to harvesting and storing crops are displayed. The gift shop is located in an old General Store setting. A one-room schoolhouse that was moved here from Holden, Maine and the Heritage Gardens are a part of the site as well.
