The Wilson Museum was founded by Dr. John Howard Wilson who came first to Castine with his mother, Cassine Cartwright Wilson, in 1891. In 1921 Mrs. Wilson gave the west end of her lot to build a museum for Dr. Wilson’s collections. Three other buildings were added to the property in the late 1960s: The John Perkins House, Blacksmith Shop and a small exhibit building.
