Built in 1969,  the name Town House comes from the Atlantic Shore Line Railway car house that was located right down Log Cabin Road at Town House Square in Kennebunkport.

Town House Shop is “Where Magic Happens”. Over the course of years, and thanks to the helping hands of many volunteers, cars have entered the shop as rusting hulks and emerged as pristine authentically restored operating vehicles.  This is also the place where the museum’s operating fleet is maintained.  Welding, machining, woodworking, electrical, upholstery – these are just a few of the skills needed to take care of our priceless vehicles..

Restoration projects rely on donor support and volunteer labor to complement and supplement the efforts of restoration employees.

If you are interested in making a financial donation, or donating materials, to help with vehicle restoration and repairs, please contact the Restoration Shop.  The Shop Manager can tell you which vehicles are currently undergoing restoration, and which are scheduled to become active restoration projects in the near future.

If you are interested in voluneering at Town House Shop, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator.
