In the before times, the Town of Hancock had a museum on Main Street in the old G.C. Murphy’s store building.

After three years of closure due to “fire, flood and pestilence,” volunteers say people still look for the museum in its former location, which was closed by a 2019 electrical fire.

Most of the museum’s artifacts were saved and moved to the basement of the Hancock Town Hall and Community Center.
