The Art of Toolmaking

The Davistown Musem in Liberty offers a unique combination of history, art, and Maine craftsmanship.

At its heart lies a collection of hand tools, exhibited for both their historical and sculptural significance. Don't believe that antique tools can be beautiful? Check out samples from this summer's exhibit—What Needs to Be Retrieved: The Marriage of Tools, Art and History. The exhibit runs through October 10.

But the Museum's interests are not wholly artistic. Their website offers insight into the history of Maine toolmaking, and includes a registry of Maine toolmakers.
