Hamlin Memorial Library and Museum


The original 1822 Oxford County Jail is now a community library and museum displaying local history. The granite building, with bars still covering the windows, is named in honor of Hannibal H. Hamlin who grew up next door and was Abraham Lincoln's first Vice President. Visitors can see Lincoln-Hamlin campaign artifacts, portraits of early residents, the 1848 Paris Friendship Quilt, a rare hand-drawn birch bark Rangeley Lakes map made by an Abenaki Indian, locally mined gems and minerals, diaries and other displays.
