The Old Orr's Island Schoolhouse sits next to our main station on Harpswell Islands Road on Orr's Island.
The historic building, where generations of island residents attended school, has been fully renovated in recent years. It is now managed by the fire department and used for community and social events.
The schoolhouse is available for rent for receptions, parties, art sales and other events. It has a full kitchen, rest room and wheelchair access.
For more information, please visit the schoolhouse web site at www.orrsislandschoolhouse.com.
Proceeds from rentals are solely used to maintain and operate the historic building.
The cookbook, originally published in 1976, includes more than 300 recipes submitted by island residents. It has been updated with historic photos and new graphics of local landmarks.
The book is on sale at many local businesses, or can be ordered by sending $12 for each copy, plus $5 for shipping and handling (and $1 more for each additional book) to OBIFD-Schoolhouse, P.O. Box 162, Orr's Island, ME 04066.
