Turner Historical Museum

Rich in history and culture, the Town of Turner has a dedicated Historical Society that is dedicated to preserving our community’s unique sense of place by showcasing Turner’s past. The Turner Historical Museum is located on the fourth floor of Turner’s historic Leavitt Institute Building in the community’s village center. The Museum is currently open for public viewing on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 12:00pm to 5:00pm., and Saturdays by appointment. Call 225-2629.

Outside the Turner Public Library, children sit on the grass in a circle around a librarian who is reading a book.

Turner’s Public Library maintains an extensive collection of books and materials for visitors of all ages and interests. They also offer a broad range of programs sure to pique your interest. Click here to be taken to their website for up-to-date information.

Music at The Gazebo

The public is cordially invited to attend the Music for Mavis summer concert series each Tuesday evening at The Gazebo. The Gazebo is located on the lawn at the Leavitt Institute Building in the historic village center. All concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. (6:00 p.m. during September). So bring a lawn chair and consider pitching in when the hat is passed — $10.00 is suggested — that’s how the musicians get paid. For more information, call 207-754-0954.
