About Us

The Parsonage explores the relationship between ecology, spirituality, and hospitality through the arts.

The Parsonage Gallery hosts cutting-edge exhibitions by diverse contemporary artists, performances, and public lectures. The Parsonage is located in a classic Federalist-style estate overlooking Penobscot Bay in the historic district of Searsport, Maine, home to legendary sea captains. The Parsonage takes its name from its construction in 1831 as the home of Rev. Stephen Thurston, a renowned pastor, abolitionist, and community leader. Inspired by Stephen and Clara Thurston’s legacy, The Parsonage seeks to provide artists, students, and community members with hospitality and support, which nourishes their creativity and deepens their connection with one another and the unique coastal environment.
