A few guest boat moorings are available for short term and overnight mooring. The Harbormaster, Sherm Stanley, can be reached at (207)542-9345 or (207)594-9342. He can help you find one or suggest suitable anchorages when you arrive – it’s first-come, first-serve, so contact when you’re near the island. Private boats should not be tied up at the dock when mainland boats arrive and depart, nor be left unattended there. Lines must be long enough to accommodate changes in the tide which may be as much as 11 feet.
We congratulate the new First and Second Assessors, Mott Feibusch and Andrew Dalrymple, sworn in today by Lisa Brackett. Jennifer Marr is the Treasurer. Rory Colin is currently serving as Third Assessor.
Celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year, the Museum is rightly getting a lot of press, this from Maine’s popular Bill Green’s Maine.
Lengthy discussions on Facebook have shown that most people who live or stay on Monhegan do not want their peace disturbed by drones buzzing overhead.It is not a question of legality. It is a question of common courtesy and sensitivity to others to leave your drones at home… The winds are unpredictable, so the drones are in danger of coming down and lost. But flying kites on long lines is a long tradition on Lighthouse Hill and on Manana – and it takes more skill!

Any excuse for a party, and this summer should be a doozy. Check out https://monheganmuseum.org/50th-anniversary-events/
for all the events – and look at the calendar of events on this site over on the right to see even more events of interest!
We just have to be patient! After a rough winter all over the northeast, we’re looking for spring anywhere we can find it. The island is getting ready to welcome you – and starting in late June, all will be ready to celebrate the Monhegan Museum’s Fiftieth Anniversary. See their schedule of events here. Come visit!
Well behaved, leashed dogs are welcome on the island if you recognize that you are responsible for their litter and behavior. They are not allowed indoors at the Museum or restaurants. A few cottages may allow pets, but please check with your rental agent before bringing a dog out. Your boat may charge for transport.
THERE HAS BEEN NO SIGN OF LYME TICKS ON MONHEGAN FOR YEARS. But a lot of people who look at this site are aware that many places around the northeast do have Lyme ticks. And this resource sheet might be useful to you. You’re welcome to download and pass along.
Do you remember picking up the little flyer from the Rope Shed with a listing of all the artists? Well, now it’s available online, and beautiful, with artwork by Dylan Metrano and samples of each artist’s work. Go to http://artmonhegan.com/ to see it!
A lot! Check out our calendar!
