Johnson Hall Museum

Tons and tons and tons of old, historical, random stuff. Piles of it. Really interesting. Randomly stopped by about a month ago, and it was great. The owner was amazing to talk to, and had some really great stories. A must see if you're driving through Maine! A real walk down the memory lanes of many decades!
