The 1875 Vera Estey Museum

16 Third Street, Presque Isle, ME 04769

Knowledgeable tour guides will entertain and educate you as they take you through this small, but fascinating Victorian era house. Tours typically last about an hour and a half. The Vera Estey House was built in 1875, and sits within the original land grant establishing Presque Isle. Vera (1894-1992) was a very unique lady for her era. She was an entrepreneur, consciously made the decision to remain single, and was also very well known for her flamboyant hats.
