Woodlawn Museum - Black House


AKA "The Black House", Woodlawn Museum in Ellsworth Maine is under the auspices of the Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations; the same organization responsible for the original institution of Acadia National Park. The Black House is a 175+ year-old estate built by Col. John Black, a land agent for William Bingham of Philadelphia, and son-in-law to Gen. David Cobb who was an aide-de-camp to Gen. George Washington. The museum offers great historical resources through public tours, school tours, educational outreach, and research opportunities through its extensive archival collection of papers and artifacts from the late 18th through early 20th centuries.
