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 welcome.
