The Langlais Sculpture Preserve was the 90-acre homestead of renowned Maine artist, Bernard “Blackie” Langlais and his wife Helen. “Blackie” created more than 3,000 indoor and outdoor works of art during his lifetime that are unique, edgy, very imaginative, and engaging to young and old.

The preserve includes a quarter-mile universally accessible path. This fine-crushed gravel pathway is 5 feet wide, and of a flat grade. There are two entrances to the trail from the parking lot, which are both on an even grade with the trail. There is a bridge at the far western end of the loop. The buildings are accessible by ramp. A wheelchair is available at the preserve; to reserve it please call (207) 594-5166.

The Langlais Sculpture Preserve is open from dawn to dusk.


Other Information

The twelve large wooden sculptures on the site were restored by the Kohler Foundation Inc. who gifted the property to the Georges River Land Trust in November 2015.
