Sedgwick, Hancock County, Maine
The Sedgwick-Brooklin Historical Society
The Sedgwick-Brooklin Historical Society, just north of Sedgwick Village on Rte 175,
is housed on the land once owned by Reverend Daniel
Merrill, Sedwick's first full-time minister. His home is the center of the Society and is
located in what was once the nucleus of Sedgwick. Across the road is the Town Meeting House,
where Reverend Merrill preached. A few paces away are the remains of the old Town Pound,
where stray animals were held until their owners picked them up, and behind the Town Meeting
House is the Sedgwick Rural Cemetery, where many of our Sedgwick ancestors and relatives have
been laid to rest.
At present, the Sedgwick Historical Society owns three buildings on the Merrill house site:
The minister's home, an old school house, and a newly built barn. All three structures contain
exhibits of interest.
The Society is open during the summer months each Sunday from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
