museum

The Friendship Museum, established in 1964, is a museum of local history preserving the artifacts and documents of a traditional seafaring community. The small brick schoolhouse that houses the museum is itself a museum artifact. Measuring only 20 by 25 feet, it is a typical one-room schoolhouse of the mid- 19th century.

It served as a grammar school from 1851-1923.

No admission charge, donations are welcome.
