Since it was founded in 1994, the Page Farm and Home Museum has become a valuable resource for the University of Maine and the state. It houses Maine's most important collection of farm technologies and artifacts relating to farms and farming communities between 1865 and 1940.

Of the thousands of people who tour the museum every year, perhaps the most important are the young students who arrive in busloads from schools across Maine. In 2007, 141 school groups attended one or more of the museum's 11 programs, on topics ranging from folk art to rural school life. Once here, they are drawn into a celebration of the values of families, community, farm, school and home in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

The Page Farm and Home Museum Endowment Fund was established in the University of Maine Foundation in 1995 to support and maintain the museum and its mission. Gifts and bequests to the Page Farm and Home Museum Endowment Fund ensure that future generations will gain valuable and practical insights into Maine's rural past.
